DJV Boutique, Ipswich - Embracing Change!

There’s never been a better time for us to unite and focus on re-igniting our community networks. Whether it’s to check on the well being of others or committing to support a local business - together we can make a difference!

During lockdown, we started planning ahead to meet the increase in online shopping. As stock wasn’t as readily available we introduced online Gift Cards as a convenient go-to gift idea, which are bought and sent on electronically. This service has proved very popular, as it's a convenient solution for sending a gift safely.

It’s definitely been bittersweet over the past few months for us as we entered our 8th year of trade at DJV Boutique during the lockdown. Although our celebrations were cancelled... we still feel privileged in reaching our 8th year in such unprecedented times.

Once we re-opened in June our top priority was to ensure that we were COVID-Secure. A sanitiser / PPE station was introduced along with social distancing material. We've changed our shop operationally to allow just one customer in at a time or two maximum from the same household. We also introduced a personal shopping appointment service, providing the visitor 30 minutes in-store with a member of staff who provides a safe consultation and will assist you personally. Appointments can be made Tuesday to Saturday between 10 am and 5 pm. If you’d like to book please call us on 01473 404592.

We’re fully operational Online and carry out orders on a daily basis, providing a variety of delivery options or click and collect! SHOP HERE

The big lessons learned so far are that we must keep innovating. For example, we’ve hosted many successful fashion events over the years and further adapting to change – we recently launched our first ‘virtual’ fashion showcase. We used professional models and videographer to achieve this and published it online. Check out our video HERE

We’re always happy to assist with gift ideas; styling advice or anything at all fashion-related this includes facilitating special orders! So why not get in touch or pay us a visit?
