Housewares chain HOUSE launched two more stores this month.

A pop up store opened on the ground floor of The Grand Arcade in Cambridge on November 2, followed seven days later by a branch in The Glades shopping centre in the Kent town of Bromley which made its debut on November 9.

The Australian retailer has opened a total of six stores in the UK so far this year. The first opened at the Westgate shopping centre in Oxford on April 16, coinciding with the launch of www.houseuk.com.
