Steph Bannister is opening a second Scouse Bird shop in Crosby


Renowned blogger Steph Bannister, aka Scouse Bird Problems, is opening a second Merseyside retail outlet selling her full range of Scouse Bird merchandise.

Steph started as an anonymous social media blogger and became an overnight sensation with her hilarious, relatable posts about life as a ‘Scouse Bird’, quickly picking up thousands of followers.

She opened a store in Aintree selling Scouse Girl diaries, Scouse mugs and lots of quirky, innovative gifts from other local entrepreneurs. Now she has struck a deal with developer St Modwen to rent a second unit in Telegraph House in Crosby Village.

Steph also opened a hair and beauty salon last year, which will be moving to Crosby in the near future and will be located next door but one to the shop. She said: “I’m so excited to be moving to Crosby. I’ve been running this business for nearly seven years now but only opened up a physical location about 18 months ago.

“It’s been like starting all over again to be honest, there’s so much I’ve had to learn but now I can take what I know and make this shop even better. It’s the same with the salon, I had no experience in that field, just an idea that I had to run with and learn from.”

The letting of the space follows St. Modwen’s investment in the village, which started with the redevelopment of the Glenn Buildings and construction of 10 Moor Lane. The company acquired the site and secured planning approval from Sefton Council in June 2017 to create 24,775 sq ft of retail, leisure and office space in the area.

Andrew Day, Asset Manager for St. Modwen, said: “Steph and her Scouse Bird brand will be a fantastic addition to Crosby village, and we’re delighted to be supporting this young, local entrepreneur.

“Liverpudlians have a soft spot for Scouse Bird Problems to say the least, and so we’re confident that she will thrive in her new home.
