Borough Kitchen set to open branch in Islington

London-based cookshop chain is preparing to open its fourth store, in the new Islington Square premium retail and leisure complex situated in north London’s old postal sorting office on Upper Street.

A pop-up will open in early November and a permanent cookshop and cook school, also in Islington Square, will follow in early 2020.

This latest branch will join the company’s first shop, which opened in Borough Market in September 2013 and its second shop, which launched on Hampstead High Street in May 2015.

Borough Kitchen then opened its first cook school at the Hampstead branch in October 2015 and relaunched its online store www.boroughkitchen.com in November 2015. In April 2016 it opened a shop and in-house cook school on Chiswick High Road. The kitchens in the cook schools are supplied by Gaggenau and all the products and equipment used in the cook schools come from Borough Kitchen’s own catalogue.

The retailer said: ‘We will bring our unique edit of best-of-the-best and best-of-value cookware and tableware to our new neighbours in Islington. This will be a great new retail hub for us and give us a greatly expanded cook school, allowing for a combination of smaller hands-on classes as well as larger team-building and corporate events.

‘Our new home will also house our offices and ecommerce business while giving us the space to extend our product range further and improve our customer service both online and in store.

Borough Kitchen is currently advertising the following vacancies for the Islington store on its website at https://www.boroughkitchen.com/careers/: a full-time retail store manager , a full-time senior sales/inventory associate, full-time sales associates and part-time sales associates.

Borough Kitchen said: ‘We are looking to further expand our team with great people who are passionate about food and keen to provide the best possible service to our customers – both in-store and online.’ It is recruiting for immediate start.
