We are a small family firm based in beautiful St. Ives, Cornwall. You can come along and visit our shop and have a chat with our staff who have extensive knowledge of our products. The St. Ives shop is open daily throughout the year (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day). Normal winter opening times are 10.30 to 5 Monday to Saturday, and 11 to 4 on a sunday. In high season you will find you will find us open each day from 10.30 to 5 and in the peak weeks we open most evenings too!
We have a great team in the St. Ives shop – some of whom have been helping in the shop for years, and they have a great knowledge of the products.
Atlantic Shore knitwear has been trading as a British wool knitwear specialist for over 30 years and has gained
a reputation for high quality products, friendly service and most importantly the very reasonable prices at which
we retail our wonderful British knitwear.
Due to popular requests from our many loyal customers throughout the UK we have built an online store – no more waitingfor your annual holiday in lovely St. Ives to make your purchase!
We are also often out and about with The Atlantic Shore Store at fairs, events and Christmas markets in the UK
For example, during 2015 we spent a very successful fortnight at The Interceltic Festival in Lorient, Brittany and The Dusseldorf Boat Show in Germany marketing our nautical range of knitwear.
We also attend many events in Cornwall and Devon including the well known Padstow and Fowey Christmas Festivals.
When ordering online you will not be dealing with a vast array of people – a team of two run the online ordering and we are always available by email or telephone to answer any queries, and are always happy to do so.
You can order with confidence, knowing that you will receive the best customer care possible.
We also have a ‘no quibble’ returns policy.
You will find that our products are the same quality but often cheaper than other retailers.
So, how do we do it?
We’re a small firm, keeping our running costs as low as possible (our shop in St. Ives is small but perfectly formed). We buy in bulk and settle immediately with partner manufacturers we trust and can rely on, who have had a long standing relationship with our firm and provide quality garments and reliability.
The majority of our products are made from 100% British Wool, and are individually made, however we also have a range of Italian knitwear and 100% cotton products too, which also offer outstanding value for money.
Some of our products are not available online, so please do come and visit us at one of the many fairs we attend,
or better still book a holiday in St. Ives and visit us in our great little shop in Fore Street!
Happy shopping and thank you for your interest in Atlantic Shore knitwear.
Steve and Sian, Atlantic Shore
