With its unmistakable pink façade and pink and white awning, The Square Pillow has been part of the community in Montpellier for three decades.
In 1988 Suzanne Langley-Sowter opened a business which has endured the test of time and all the changes that the retail sector has seen during the past 30 years. This is in no small way due to the relationships Suzanne has built with her customers and suppliers alike.
Suzanne’s ethos is ‘only stunning will do’ and this is reflected in the suppliers she chooses and underpins the loyal customer base she has built up. The Square Pillow is the only stockist in the UK of some highly respected luxury European brands of bed and bath linen, nightwear and robes, bringing people from around the country to Cheltenham to shop there.
They support the BID’s projects, like BID in Bloom and the social media training and are a strong advocate for our Tidy Up Cheltenham Campaign.
The shop always looks attractive and Suzanne takes pride in maintaining the inside as well as the outside, updating it with regular coats of paint to keep it looking fresh, keeping the awning clean and bright. The summer window displays are cool and inviting and their Festive Façade entry, with its giant pink baubles brought some sparkle to Christmas shopping.
Suzanne always welcomes the BID ambassadors when they visit. She says: “The team are always very cheerful, and I enjoy our chats, so it’s not a hardship to take a moment and catch up on Montpellier and Cheltenham business with them.”
As BID Business of the month, Suzanne will have the opportunity to speak at the June Cheltenham Business Forum’s BIG Breakfast. We will highlight The Square Pillow across our social media channels, and they will feature on the home page of our website.
Square Pillow also won Highly Commended in the Cotswold Life Cheltenham BID awards, Independent Business of Year.
