More Reasons to Shop at Marion’s.
If anything has come to light over the last year, it’s just how important local shops like Marion’s in Egremont are.
They have always been the beating heart of our communities but recently many have found themselves at the centre of the community during these trying times as they delivered food and supplies to the vulnerable, were there with a helping hand for those in need, made sure they stocked the items we couldn’t find anywhere else and confirmed beyond doubt, they are the businesses we can’t be without.
Every town should have one and Egremont can proudly claim that they have Marion’s.
Marion Mossop has run a store in Egremont for the past fifteen years: “I like to call it Arkwright’s
shop, from Open All Hours, because we have a little bit everything. We sell flowers, live plants,
seasonal goods, fruit and veg, jams, chutneys, biscuits, cakes and cards.
We specialise in pet and animal supplies for dogs, cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils or fish.

to practice on 20 retired show dogs and when I moved into the area from Preston, I started doing a few dog grooming jobs and it just went from there.
Grooming is still a growing industry because all of these new breeds like Cockapoos have very
specific needs. I’m one of the longest-running grooming parlours in the area with a big base of
We have two tables and nice big stainless steel baths to make sure your dog is as comfortable
as possible. When we’re finished with them they’ll look fantastic a smell great. Every dog also
gets a sausage which they all love, they might not necessarily enjoy getting clipped but they
always want their treat.”
Marion’s has always been at the heart of the community and you don’t need a global pandemic
to remind you just how special they are.
Marion’s is remaining open during the lockdown for the time being, however this may be subject to change as will their services, please visit their Facebook page for updates here@MarionsPetShop
