ProCook makes short move at Gloucester Quays
By Rob Freeman | 3rd December 2020
Staff at ProCook's Gloucester Quays shop did not just return to work this week - they began life in new premises.
The kitchen and cookware retailer, which is based in Gloucester, opened the doors on a 2,500sq ft store in the outlet mall when they were able to resume trading with the change in coronavirus restrictions.
During the November lockdown, staff have been busy preparing the shop inside the Quays, having previously been alongside one of the entrances in High Orchard Street.
Retail director Andy Kerr said: "We'd completely outgrown our previous unit after 11 years so when the opportunity arose to move into a new larger space, we jumped at it.
"The new layout allows us to display our tableware and kitchenware ranges fully and gives customers more space to browse comfortably.
"We're delighted to be able to open in December allowing shoppers to get stocked up before Christmas."
The move comes days after the company clocked up record single-day sales in excess of £500,000, despite only 13 of its 48 shops remaining open.
Founder Daniel O'Neill said: "Gloucester Quays is very dear to us being in our home town so it is imperative we offer local customers the very best experience.
"The centre was thriving between lockdowns and our sales figures reflected that, proving that retail is very much alive and kicking.
"Nothing beats shopping in person to appreciate quality and finish of a product, so we're completely committed to maintaining and growing our presence on the high street and in shopping centres."
