The July/August issue of Housewares Magazine is out now. As always, the publication is packed with pages and pages of new products, and brimming with profiles of leading players in the housewares sector.
Here’s just a taster of why we’re the UK’s most widely read business title for housewares retailers and their suppliers.
Our trade show coverage includes a review of the Home & Gift Buyers’ Festival, held in Harrogate in July, and a look back at Exclusively Housewares and Exclusively Electrical, held in London in June.
Retailers profiled include reports on 69-strong specialist chain Lakeland, multi-award winning online gift list service Prezola and independent Tewkesbury Cookshop, which celebrates its second anniversary under new owners next month.
Other retailers featured include Peter Jackson, partner of the Gifted Cook in Sheffield, and Kitchens directors Nicky Foster and Karen Carnovale, who are hanging up their pricing guns to follow new pursuits. We find what, why and when.
Michael Weedon, former deputy ceo and communications director of the British Independent Retailers Association (bira) ,also tells us what he’s doing now since moving on from the trade body at the end of June.
Meanwhile, Ultimate Products ceo Simon Showman and Bryan Clover, ceo of industry charity the Rainy Day Trust, share their views.
Product-wise, we focus on the latest launches across a host of categories from tools & gadgets, baking & icing, weighing & measuring, colour in the kitchen and afternoon tea.
But that’s not all. As well as your regular favourites, including our column by Gary Gordon (joint md and buying director of Surrey cookshop business Kitchen Kapers), our readers’ letters pages, and our Best Sellers lists – this time from The Mill Shop in the Isle of Man and you-cook in Hunstanton – we have an exclusive interview with celebrity chef Tom Kerridge, who talks about his new housewares range.
