Bringing People Together
It was a shame when Steadman's closed after its long service to Hampton and it was certainly a bit sad over the last couple of months to walk past its half-cleared shelves. Now of course the store is even emptier, but that does raise the positive prospect of something new opening. Does any know what it is likely to be? Or have any views on what it should be? Maybe something a bit different that can tempt the fairly large number of people that pass the shop ever day?
I have never understood the purchasing of coffee from a supermarket or the photos one often sees of 'celebrities' (I use the word advisedly) walking along with their coffee. Personally I find it impossible to walk and drink and would much rather sit down with a mug and have a good natter. Perhaps it's my age :) I heartily agree that human contact is declining and I fully admit that I do buy some things on line (but never food) - I hope you can come to the HPN drinks at The Dip (Railway Bell) on 17th June!
I too am for a hardware shop, possibly selling garden stuf too
Yes a hardware store we just moved and need heaps of stuff. We don't drive and a hike to squires in this heat...nah!
Any news on what Steadmans will turn into? I heard rumours of a hardware shop, an Italian patisserie and now a chiropractor..??! I don't think an art gallery, tearoom or 'one-month' shop will work unfortunately.
BREAKING NEWS – Part of old Steadman’s unit available to rent from JUNE!
Perhaps as a pop-up shop, art gallery or craft shop. Ideas welcome!
As can be seen from the outside there are 2 entrances to the old Steadman’s shop. The unit is now split into 2 with the unit on the left being available to let on a short term arrangement. Due to the size and benefit of a flexible short term let it would be ideal for someone local to try out a burgeoning new business idea.
Feel free to message back on here or give me a call on 07825110296. Or just grab me if you see me around the property or area. I’m open to all kinds of ideas for what we can do with this unit.
Good luck, Gagan. The empty space has been a bit sad so it would great to see something new and exciting pop up!
