The Cookware Company in Carlisle set to close

The Cookware Company at Victoria Viaduct in the Cumbrian town of Carlisle is set to close its doors next month.

In statement, owner Rod Abel told “We love your [sister title] Housewares magazine and have used it as a reference throughout our 26 years of trading.

Unfortunately, like so many other independents, we have found our overheads increasing and sales dropping, so have made the decision to cease trading at the end of January 2018. We have already closed down our website.

“Many of our suppliers feature in Housewares magazine and I wondered if you would give us a mention regarding our departure and convey our appreciation to them for their support over the years.”

Rod and Carol Abel opened The Cookware Company on Victoria Viaduct in September 1991. With Rod’s experience as a buyer for Jenners department store and Studio One in Edinburgh and Carol’s customer service experience in the banking industry, their product knowledge, service levels and wide selection of brands such as Stellar, Le Creuset, Sabatier, Global and KitchenCraft soon established The Cookware Company as a specialist retailer which remains, Rod says, the only independent, family-run cookshop in Carlisle.
