David Shuttle first opened his doors for business in December 1978, in the desirable market town of Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire. The very first shop, based on Gregories Road, experienced instant success, and following a period of healthy growth, the business relocated to a larger site in Beaconsfield in May 1983.
This enviable plot on Penn Road became the new home for David Shuttle and the flagship store. Three extensions and numerous re-fits later, the business had blossomed into one of the biggest and best independent Home & Gifts stores in the UK.
In 2002, as the flagship store continued to flourish, a second David Shuttle store – an independent Cook Shop – launched, only 30 yards from the flagship. The Cook Shop swiftly became the epicentre for Beaconsfield’s food aficionados, from bakers to home cooks.
As David Shuttle’s mission statement – “We aim to give you, our customer, the best service possible” – conveys, the business consistently aims to provide its customers with outstanding customer service and as much information as possible. As such, 2008 saw the launch of the online webstore, www.DavidShuttle.com.
Today, the online store continues to expand, as it unfailingly provides the same uniquely personal shopping experience to the world 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
2014 was a landmark year for David Shuttle as we launched a new Jewellery & Watch Boutique at the site of the original Cook Shop on Penn Road. Our current Cook Shop offering has been consolidated into our Home Gifts store, and the newly refurbished Jewellery & Watch boutique offers customers the opportunity to shop from a plethora of coveted designer brands ordinarily only found in London in a unique environment.
The luxurious Jewellery & Watch Boutique plays host to exclusive new collections of stunning jewellery and exquisite timepieces by Links of London, Swarovski, Ted Baker, Vivienne Westwood, Olivia Burton and many more.
Encapsulating everything that David Shuttle’s Beaconsfield stores and the online store has grown to stand for, the very latest development upholds the traditions and ethos of the business, as it also continues to evolve the unique service and the products that David Shuttle offers.
