Nisbets’ burgeoning retail network is poised to get even bigger after the company confirmed this morning that it will open a catering equipment store in Newcastle.
The Bristol-based outfit is currently putting the finishing touches to the store ahead of its official launch on Monday 22 May.
The expansion consolidates Nisbets’ growing presence in the north of England, where it already has stores in Chester, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and York.
Nisbets will use the Scotswood Road shop to target local Newcastle chefs and caterers, offering them access to a huge range of utensils, clothing and light equipment, as well as heavy duty kitchen appliances.
Although renowned for its catering equipment catalogues, Nisbets has made a huge investment in developing a retail infrastructure over the past four years.
Newcastle will be its 26th store in the UK and it will mark its arrival in the city by holding a special launch event on Thursday 25 May. Customers will be entitled to a 20% discount on orders during the evening.
The store will stock 2,500 products in total, while the rest of its portfolio will be available for next-day delivery.
