About Us

In 2001 Catherine and Laura, with their many years of retail and sales experience and with Cath's flair for  buying, decided to open a card and gift shop in Milnrow Rochdale and The Card House was born. After 2 successful years of working in the industry and bringing on board Cath's daughter Becky the time was right for expansion. After looking at many properties, we found an old furniture shop which stood empty in Ashton in Makerfield and the decision was made, papers signed and hands shaken it was now time to make our new baby come to life. So with the help of Marjorie and Brian (Caths mum and dad) we started to slat wall everything out and buy new fixtures and fittings and a counter.

The opening date was set for the 22nd of February 2004 and it was all systems go!!

Then the all important job of recruiting staff and buying stock began so after many interviews we took on two full timers and two part timers of which Angie still remains. Although we only have Angie still with us from our opening day, we have had some really fantastic staff come and go and 3 years ago we decided to appoint a supervisor to help with the running of the shop. Our choice was made very easy  as 6 years earlier a young girl joined us as our Saturday girl and she is still with us today, Laura Davies has a flair for the job and her commitment and attention to detail made her the perfect candidate.

Part of the ethos of The Card House is good friendly knowledgeable staff which we feel we have, we recently introduced Laura Hutchinson to our ranks, whom with a wealth of experience in retail joins us after 4 years of working for Disney and is helping to sprinkle that little bit of magic everywhere she goes with her excellent customer service skills. So we really believe our staff will treat you like a friend and make your shopping experience with us a great one.

Please feel free to have a look at our staff gallery. we have over 30 years experience in the balloon industry, which has led to us working for some great clients both small and large both here and overseas. Whether it be a customer looking for a card and gift or a large client looking to launch a product we will give them both the same courtesy and attention they require.

We feel everyday should be a great experience not only for us but our customers too, so if at any time you feel we haven't reached our own high standards please email cath@thecardhouse.co.uk 

Please get to know our wonderful Card House Family.
