Steamer Trading Cookshop sets its sights on Stamford

The housewares specialist has already revealed plans to open a new store in Glasgow, which will be its first in Scotland.

Measuring 4,000sq ft over two floors, it is located on Gordon Street – one of city’s busiest shopping districts – right alongside the Central Station.

The second shop, which only exchanged last week, will be in the Lincolnshire market town of Stamford. Measuring just over 2,000sq ft over two floors, it is a Grade II* listed building at no.7 High Street, with an original shopfront dating back to 1770.

In terms of timings, Steamer Trading Cookshop managing director Ben Phillips said Glasgow is scheduled to open in October and will probably come just after Stamford.

Ben added that he is expecting to open one more store this year in addition to Glasgow and Stamford, but that it was too early to confirm locations.

Steamer Trading Cookshop is headquartered in the East Sussex town of Lewes. The group currently operates 28 stores from Bournemouth to Beverley and from Canterbury to Chester with total annual sales of more than £20m.
