Proud, self-confessed stationery addict Sarah established Stationery Supplies in Marple – a bustling yet leafy village in Stockport, Cheshire – in 2005. Sarah left a nursing career to realise her dream of owning a stationery, gift and card shop and since then has worked hard to become an integral part of the local community. This passion is key to her shop’s success. Sarah and Stationery Supplies are often at the forefront of planning local events, fundraising for charities, supporting foodbanks and the town’s business forum.
Nationally, Sarah is spearheading National Stationery Week’s #stationeryshopsaturday for the second year running – a dedicated day for independent stationers which encourages retailers of all sizes to open their doors, invite consumers and promote all things stationery.Sarah was shortlisted for both the Indie Retail and the Stationery awards in 2019
