Hello! My name is Alison and I am the owner of Country Pursuits and Capture Boutique. The shops offer Lifestyle and Fashion clothing, mostly for women, and are located in the beautiful village of Bridge of Allan where I live with my Husband and two young children. I spent 15 years in Construction as a Surveyor before I decided to 'retire' from the corporate world and set up on my own doing what I really love - buying clothes!
My philosophy at Country Pursuits (CP) and Capture Boutique (CB) is simple; if I don't love it, I won't stock it. The team and I aim to create a close bond with our valued customers and want you to feel unique, special and fabulous whether you're buying a pair of Hunter Boots for walking the dog, or a sparkly Evening Dress for a big event. I promise that I will never perpetually restock fashion items either - once we sell out, it's not coming back into the stores. Who wants to be the same as every other girl on the high street anyway - certainly not me!
Whether you shop instore (and there is usually always some prosecco on the go!) or online or by phone, you'll get the same great service. Our online purchases are delivered beautifully wrapped (I have wrapping OCD) and you will adore opening them. I hand select and add new pieces to our seasonal collections weekly so keep checking in on the shop instore, online and on social media.
I am a small business and I hope that with your support and love for my shops, I can continue to serve you for many years to come.Your custom isn't fuelling a large corporation but allowing me to be closer to my kids, play more and make memories and that is what life is all about. For every £1 spent in a small local business, around 80p makes it back to the local economy compared to 5p from large corporations. I hope my efforts make a difference to my family life and that of the community in which I live, work and play. Please sign up to the newsletter where we send information on promotions, new arrivals and other news (I promise I don't send these daily to the point where we are just annoying - I certainly don't have enough time for that!). Follow us on Instagram and Facebook and Twitter too. We will follow you right back!
Enjoy shopping and thank you, it genuinely means a lot.
