About the Business

The world of pad was created by Darren Birch and David Winterton. Having spent several years bringing rundown Victorian and Edwardian terrace houses back to life in the leafy South Manchester suburb of Chorlton, it became increasingly clear that many of the finishing touches for these projects were being bought while we were both on business trips to London, Glasgow and further afield. We soon realised that there was a gap in the market and decided to open our first shop, pad-chorlton with the mission of bringing fabulous hard to find items to South Manchester. In December 2007 (9 months after opening) The Guardian Newspaper named pad-chorlton in their "UK's Best Independent Gift Shops" listings. The Guardian said of pad-chorlton - "Although it primarily sells homeware, pad's lighting, homeware, kitchenware and other products are designed so well that they could easily be given as gifts."
