Cookshop Plus

Based on 1 review |
Everything for the cook/chef

A product mix that is affordable, stylish and always top quality is one of the factors that continues to draw customers to Cookshop Plus. The emphasis is on the kitchen with a strong focus on the essentials needed in both the home and commercial arena. There is a full complement of dining, entertaining and hostess gifts. Weddings, including a bridal registry, are a specialty. In keeping with an emphasis on customer service, staff are easily identifiable and have excellent product knowledge. "If we can't make a sale, we make a friend," is the store's proud boast.

    Cookshop Plus+ In Bong Bong Street!

    Cookshop Plus is pleased to announce that it has now opened its new store at 340 Bong Bong Street in Bowral (between the Wombat and Rodney Clarke stores).
    The new premises is approximately 3 times the size of the original shop in Springetts Arcade.
    In addition to one of the largest ranges of kitchenware anywhere in Australia, we now stock a range of homewares including table linen, bed & bath linen, bathroom accessories, cushions, home fragrances, decorative glassware and accessories and a whole lot more.
    The new store also includes a childrens play area to take the stress out of shopping with young children, as well as a demonstration area for kitchen products.
    Food tastings are also conducted on most Saturdays. Don’t miss our “New Orleans comes to Cookshop Plus” promotion on Saturday 31st January when Victor Kimble from Soul Food Kitchen will demonstrate his range of spices and sauces. Our previous promotions with Victor have been a huge success, so make sure you make a date to see Victor in-store.
    The following are a few photos of the new shop:

    The Cookshop Plus Story

    Cookshop Plus was founded in February 2000. It was the culmination of 20 years retailing experience for founder Clare Goodwin, who had previously operated kitchenware outlets in Newcastle and Brisbane. Now owned and operated by Joanne and Terry Ryan, the store continues to enhance an international reputation for quality and service.

    Cookshop Plus is a multi-award wining store, ranging from “Best new business” in the local Southern Highlands Small Business Awards, to the national and international GIA awards for Housewares Innovation and Merchandising Excellence (2003/4).

    There are a number of factors that set Cookshop Plus apart including our old fashioned service, a comprehensive range of quality contemporary housewares, complimentary gift wrapping as well as the friendliness and excellent product knowledge of our staff. It is no wonder that we have regular customers that travel from Sydney, Canberra and the coast, just to shop at Cookshop Plus.

    At Cookshop Plus we aim to have a product mix which is affordable, stylish and above all, top quality. We have everything from kitchenware, cookware, dining, entertaining, as well as a full range of gifts for the host or hostess.

    Cookshop Plus caters for wedding gifts with a full bridal registry available, including gift wrapping and free delivery within the Southern Highlands. We also believe that a newly married couple should not go without any of the gifts they requested, and provide a 15% discount to the happy couple on all unpurchased items.

    In addition to being popular with the home cooking enthusiast, we are meeting the needs of local restaurants and caterers.

    If you are looking for a new shopping experience (or just a return to the levels of service of yesteryear), where you can receive as little or as much assistance as you require, add Cookshop Plus in Bowral to your list of “must see” locations.

Our experienced staff will guide you through the entire process. Registry lists can be provided to guests via mail, email, fax or over the phone.

    Gift Wrapping

    Cookshop Plus provides a free in-store gift wrapping service on purchases over $15. For gift wrapping on purchases under $15 we request a gold-coin donation to our local charity Rainbow of the Southern Highlands (Supports the families of chronically and terminally ill children aged 0-16 and raises money for life saving equipment for the Childrens Ward at the Bowral & District Hospital).

Failure to complete the lay-by within the 8 week period will result in a termination of the lay-by, with the goods being returned to stock and the loss of the 15% deposit.
