You’ll find everything you need for the kitchen and home (and a lot you probably don’t). The quality is excellent, even down to the carrier bags. There’s loads of parking and a great cafe upstairs. Gets very busy, especially when it rains!

Sorry but not seen dogs in this store, there is a nice quite area to sit outside with your dog, but I suspect assistance dogs only. give them a call to make sure, happy shopping.
