The Keekin' Glass opened it's doors in December 2013 and from the very beginning Heather & Kenny wanted to offer the town of Prestwick a shopping experience that was a bit more special and that customers would remember. We see ourselves as 'personal shoppers', a potential customer might not know what they are looking to buy (they know the person it's for) but it's up to us to help them pick the appropriate gift.
Set in the west coast of Scotland in the heart of Robert Burns country, the town of Prestwick is the proud home of 'The Open Golf Championships'. There is a proud history in the town and it is very much vibrant community with various groups all working together to support and improve the town. Prestwick was the winner of the 2019 Visa - Great British High Street Awards in Scotland. We are fortunate that the local population support the town, resulting in a high occupancy rate of all commercial properties.
Our main retail concept was to offer something more to our customers. We want a visit to our shop to be a pleasant experience for each and every person and for The Keekin' Glass to be the first place people think of when they need to buy a gift. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile as well as the quality of the complimentary gift wrapping we provide. Heather's artistic background comes in handy to add a bit of flare to this service and it's become a talking point with many of our customers. We wanted the shop to have personality, and there's nothing better than customers going round the shop having a wee chuckle at some of our cheekier cards and gifts!
