Groogans, a family run business, which has been trading for 50+ years at 109 Main Street Dungiven, N.Ireland.
My Auntie Kate ran the business successfully for all those years, before I moved back home from Dublin to take over the helm.
Having spent close to 20 years in Dublin, where by jobs included; Buyer for Aer Lingus Retail, where I was responsible for buying the on-board retail magazine, as well as buying all your chicken and stuffing sandwiches and introducing Tayto on board! Then I went on to work as a Buyer in Brown Thomas, looking after Interiors, gifting and also their luxury food!!
Back in Dungiven, I have given 109 Main Street a facelift, as well as the clothing you see on here, I sell a wide range of clean beauty brands including Caudalie, Pestle & Mortar, Kinvara Skincare and VOYA in my shop. Also Interior gifting which includes, Max Benjamin, Peppermint Grove from Australia, Tipperary Crystal and Pips Studio.
Our fashion brands, are very much catwalk driven which is demonstrated well by Selected Femme ranges, but I also enjoy colour and point of difference which Coster of Copenhagen does very well.
Above all, I like to buy pieces which are going to be comfortable and which my customer will get great wear out of, with most of my styles able to be dressed up or down, determined usually by footwear choice!
