Local flavours at Kitchen Range

A “fantastic Christmas” 2019 at The Kitchen Range in West Wickham saw sales up by 7% up on the previous year’s takings, reports manager Lucy Richards, who attributes part of the success to new products.

“Our recent acquisitions such as locally made preserves, a new line of bespoke south east London glassware and the introduction of brands such as Kambuka, GreenPan, Koziol and Huski Home were great eco hits,” she states.

Lucy also highlights the shop’s incredible team: “We have seven amazing women working for us who create the most incredible aura in the shop. It is a warm, friendly, happy place, which led to the second Christmas in a row being up.”

Moreover, 2019 was a success story, and Lucy is “happy to buck the trend,” proclaiming: “Our overall year was up 3%, which was a very welcome start to the new year.”

The Kitchen Range teamed up with South London based Lex Hamilton Floral Studio, which installed eye-catching arrangements in the cookshop’s Christmas window, and presented Christmas wreath-making workshops. Cookshop customers enjoyed festive creativity and steamed mulled wine at the events.
