Family Run Business
& Dog Friendly
Bluebell & Willow is a family owned and run business set in the heart of Hillsborough. Joanne has always dreamt of running her own shop and whilst off on maternity leave was keen to find a job closer to home and not be as far from their little boy Luke. When 19 Ballynahinch St in Hillsborough became vacant it was the perfect building and location and that's where it all began.
Richard is a Joiner and builder by trade so was able to refurbish the building to the high standard Joanne had in mind for Bluebell & Willow. Opening on Luke's first birthday on 9th June 2018 it literally has been a dream come true for Joanne and her family and far removed from her previous career in Pharmaceuticals.
Having moved to County Down from North Antrim, Hillsborough Forest Park is one of Joanne's favourite places to walk their Miniature Schnauzer Bertie but hates having to leave him in the car after walkies and because of this the shop is also dog friendly.
The shop has expanded over the years and now includes a ladies fashion & footwear section and Joanne's family also expanded in 2020 to include Charlotte, it's been a busy few years!
