The Card Shop, Cardiff

Dominions Arcade

Family-run business, The Card Shop, Cardiff, has seen many changes to Dominons Arcade over the years.  Alison Manship and husband Chris took over the business from Alison’s parents who opened the store in 1980.

As well as cards, the store also sells gifts bags, novelty balloons and a range of Welsh cards and gifts designed by local artists. “When the store opened, there were very few places in the city centre to buy quality gift cards,” says Chris, “We pride ourselves on giving a personal experience and have stocking something that is unusual or different.”

“People love the arcades,” says Chris, “It’s amazing to be included in the Top 10 stores.  The campaign has been great for highlighting the fantastic businesses out there and we’re keen to keep the momentum going.”
