At Elephant Yard, we’re really proud to be able to offer something for everyone - mums, dads, and the children too!
We know when it comes to that (sometimes) dreaded shopping trip, it will be much more bearable if the kids also have something to look forward to.
At Kendal Library, your little ones can enjoy endless entertainment. There is, of course, a superb selection of books - but great reads are only the beginning. You can also book a slot to surf the internet on one of the PCs, and you can rent DVDs, CDs and talking books on cassette, CD, MP3 or Playaway formats, to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
Claire’s is a girly girl’s favourite shopping spot for a good reason - the store has a fabulous selection of accessories, jewellery, make-up and dress up outfits. Our Claire’s store in Elephant Yard also offers ear piercing, and as Claire’s bills itself as the world’s leading ear piercing specialist, having pierced 90 million ears over the last 20 years at more than 3,000 Claire’s around the world - rest assured, you’ll be in safe hands.
Peacocks and Next both offer clothes for children. With Peacocks’ offering starting from babies at 0-24 months, and going up to 14 years. Next also caters for both girls and boys clothing, as well as a great shoe collection, school shop and holiday shop - so you can easily get their entire wardrobe sorted in just one place.
And if the time comes that your little darlings might need glasses, family run S., C. & T. Bagot Optometrists will be on hand to make sure the process runs as smoothly as possible. The store offers an exciting choice of stylish eyewear, together with complete eyecare from their experienced team of opticians and optometrists.
Their full eyecare service includes specialist advice on glasses, contact lenses, bifocals and multifocals. You can also book an eye test with them – either private or NHS – and you’ll have the reassurance of a thorough examination by their experts. The store’s Kendal test room is equipped with leading-edge technology including retinal imaging, which helps them to check the complete health of eyes.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family along to Elephant Yard soon.
