South-west cookshop chain Kitchens is preparing to celebrate St George’s Day on April 23 with a patriotic promotion.
The company said the date is “a wonderful excuse to fly the flag and take a closer look at the items we stock that are made in England – and there are hundreds, including knives, bakeware, storageware, cake decorations and textiles.”
Housewares products and suppliers highlighted include anodised aluminium bakeware from Birmingham-based manufacturer Alan Siverwood including its new Delia Online range; plus Progress Bakeware, Wonderbake and Mermaid bakeware.
Also part of the ‘Made In England’ promotion are top of the range Dualit toasters (pictured), and some Tala items from George East Housewares including the Tala Icing Syringe, Icing Pen and Cook’s Dry Measure.
Kitchens has also selected a number of knives made in Sheffield including those from Taylor’s Eye Witness and The Smithfield range, plus a selection of woodware items made in England by Row & Sons. C’est Ca! textiles and Stewart Plastics storageware are also highlighted.
“With so much product now imported from overseas we’re delighted that we can stock all these English, and indeed British-made items and many more,” the retailer said.
Kitchens operates three cookshops in Cardiff, Bristol and Bath. The business was a Gold Winner in www.HousewaresLive.net and Housewares Magazine’s Most Innovative Retailer Awards 2012.
