Cookshop now open at Poundbury Gardens

Added on 10 May 2013

A brand-new cookshop at Poundbury Gardens has been officially opened by Mayor Andy Canning. Specialist cookshop Owen & Simpson, which stocks brands such as KitchenAid, Joseph Joseph and Kuhn Rikon, is already proving a hit with the Poundbury community and further afield.

Says James Foster-Pegg, manager of Poundbury Gardens: "We are thrilled to welcome the Owen & Simpson team to Poundbury Gardens. We were looking to enhance our appeal and offering here at Poundbury and the new cookshop has done just that. The manager, David Taylor was delighted when we approached him with the opportunity and took just ten days from our initial meeting to get everything up and running. The cookshop looks great and it is wonderful to see it open and filled with people."

With a successful shop in Dorchester Town centre, Owen & Simpson was officially opened with a celebration evening attended by the Mayor, local businesses and Poundbury residents. Mayor Andy Canning comments: "It is great when two businesses come together to form a strong partnership and it is obvious that the cookshop here at Poundbury will be very popular. With news about the economy it is important for businesses to innovate and stay ahead of the game and this is a great example of two businesses doing just that."
