The Coffee House opens new shop in the Old Market Place

TWO brothers who set up their first coffee shop 10 years ago have now opened up their ninth branch – the second in their hometown.

The Coffee House opened its doors last week in the former Patisserie Valerie unit in the Old Market Place in Warrington town centre.

After being established by Chris and Stephen Shelmerdine back in July 2011 in Lymm, the former Lymm High School pupils have since opened stores in Sale, Partington, Widnes, Huyton, Northwich, Bootle and Runcorn.

The team at Golden Square Shopping Centre have already welcomed many new and existing customers into the new coffee shop, which boasts bespoke wall art giving a nod to Warrington and its history – including a mural of the town’s famous Golden Gates.

“We would like to thank Ian Cox and his team at Golden Square for all the support and help whilst building the store,” Chris said. “We are pleased to say we have had a very warm welcome from everyone, and being our hometown it is a location we have always wanted to be part of.”

Shopping centre director Ian Cox added: “I’ve been watching in anticipation over the last few months and the new venue looks superb.

“The Coffee House is a very welcome addition indeed to Golden Square, and we look forward to them being part of all that goes on in our outdoor hive of activity.”
