The Baby Cot Shop’s founder, Toks Aruoture, can be spotted on billboards across the UK. The Director of Chelsea’s most premium nursery shopping destination is the new face of accounting company Sage’s latest campaign, demonstrating that small businesses can thrive in the post-pandemic climate.
The boutique store, which launched in 2008, has gone from strength to strength and this exciting collaboration is a true reﬂection of the business journey entrepreneur Toks has been on.
Like many others, The Baby Cot Shop has faced challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, but has kept their promise to providing a ﬁve star service to customers and going above and beyond. In 2020, the store was recognised by the UK government as one of 80 inspirational businesses, they helped more international mums than ever ﬁnd their perfect nursery and the company had a full rebrand.
Fast-forward to July 2021 and The Baby Cot Shop’s founder is lighting up billboards across London’s roads, buses and shopping centres promoting Sage, with the words ‘The Baby Cot Shop is bossing Chelsea’.
This campaign proves that business isn’t just about the numbers, it’s about the presence in your local community too. The Baby Cot Shop is proud to be business that makes a big impact in Chelsea, consistently lifting community spirit and guiding mums-to-be and new mums towards their dream nursery.
“It’s an honour and privilege to be the campaign face of Sage, especially as we owe part of The Baby Cot Shop’s success to using their software,” says Toks. “Sage reports on how my business is doing, so it’s basically my virtual assistant. In my career I’ve always held onto my business vision but remained ﬂexible to how it all comes together. I’m so proud of this collaboration.”

Her journey began when she moved to Atlanta, Georgia, in 2005 and launched a high-end furniture store. After returning to the UK Toks discovered an absence of luxury furniture for babies and children. Thus, The Baby Cot Shop online was born.
