Cooking up a storm...

As lockdown seemed to dramatically change not only the nations shopping habits, but our cooking and eating routines, we take a look at what happened during lockdown and whether these trends are set to continue for a while to come....

As at-home evening dining occasions increased 60 per cent throughout lockdown, households are now spending more time cooking from scratch, which has seen consumers purchasing six times as much fresh meat, with pork (690 per cent sales increase) and beef (519 per cent sales increase) being the favourites.

New to our Quadrant Department Stores...

The Alston's Fairmont range is a fusion of Scandinavian style with a modern urban twist and it's made right here in the UK. 


The beautifully proportioned track arm and sleek lines of a rustic weathered oak or more glamourous satin aluminum front plinth create minimalism that exudes character.

Fantastically textured chenille plains mixed with geometric scatters are finished with bold velvet accents that pull each of the fabric stories together.


On display in both our Chelmsford & Braintree stores.
