The original Abraxas Cookshop opened in July 1996 at the beautifully restored and renovated Heart of The Shires Shopping Village. Built in 1867 and in its former days a model working Victorian farm, the shopping village is now home to twenty two retail outlets. Abraxas Cookshop is situated on the top floor of a 3000 sq ft dutch barn, stocking every item imaginable from a pastry brush to state-of-the art coffee machines, cookware, bakeware, knives, electricals, gadgets, utensils and kitchen work stations. In March 2004, Abraxas opened another branch in Regent Street, Rugby situated twelve miles from the primary store at The Heart of The Shires Shopping Village. The renovation was carried out in keeping with the nineteenth century building containing beautiful high ceilings, covings and unusual features. Downstairs in the restored basement, customers can view cookware ranges and accessories together with an electrical section displaying working coffee machines. In November 2004 Abraxas China & Glass opened at 15 Regent Street, Rugby stocking a comprehensive range of cutlery, glassware, dinnerware, table-top accessories and christening presents. Suppliers include LSA, Maxwell & Williams and Emma Bridgewater. The biggest renovation challenge yet, the Banbury shop was discovered in June 2004 in a very run-down condition. Built in 1867, this unique building, listed and in a conservation area, necessitated a complete restoration. Opened in June 2005, Abraxas Banbury has enjoyed positive customer feed-back. Local people were pleased to see this once dilapidated building transformed into a thriving retail business. The usual extensive and comprehensive range of cookware including knives, bakeware, storage, gadgets, utensils, textiles and work stations are displayed on the first floor. Downstairs in the vaulted basement, they have the China & Glass section, including Emma Bridgewater pottery, dinnerware, glassware and table-top accessories together with a working coffee machine area where customers may `test-drive' the equipment and sample the result! They were thrilled when the opportunity arose to take on these lovely premises on a prime shopping street in Northampton, filled with other independent retailers, cafes and bars. Opened in November 2006, Abraxas Northampton benefits from large ground and first floor areas, capturing the rural Abraxas feel into the urban town environment.
