Nisbets will open a third store in London selling catering equipment and supplies this week.
The company had previously expressed its intentions to launch an outlet in West London and it will do so this Friday when it opens a store close to Fulham Broadway tube station.
The store, located at 538 Fulham Road, is on the same stretch of road as the former Hansens Kitchen Equipment showroom.
Nisbets broke into the London market back in 2009 when it acquired Pages to secure a flagship site in Shaftesbury Avenue. Last year it opened a second outlet in Commercial Street in East London.
Nisbets today called the Fulham Road store a “welcome addition” to its retail portfolio and said the location close to Fulham Broadway would make it easily accessible to local caterers wanting equipment immediately.
Steve Collins, head of retail at Nisbets, said: “Feedback from our customers indicates that they like to have the opportunity to see and feel the products, which is why having a retail presence close to a vibrant food service area in London is key to continuing our excellent levels of service.”
The store that opens on Friday will feature more than 3,000 catering products from brands such as Waring, KitchenAid, ChefWorks, Dynamic, Santos and Samsung, as well as own brands including Buffalo, Polar, Athena and Olympia.
It will also offer a ‘Call, Pay & Collect Service’, meaning customers can order over the phone and then collect in store, usually within one hour.
Nisbets now operates six showrooms in total. The remaining sites are based in Bristol, Birmingham and Leeds.
