Kitchen Store Set For Newport

Another empty store in Newport could be filled - if national kitchen chain, Kutchenhaus, comes to town.

Kutchenhaus, providers of German traditional or modern made-to-measure kitchens, is looking to take over part of the former Maplin store at the Coppins Bridge Retail and Leisure Park.

The store is set to open this winter, with signage placed on the building as soon as August 1, if a planning application is approved.

The national kitchen showroom chain has nearly 60 stores across the country.

It would join other big names such as The Gym Group, Cineworld, Pizza Hut, Burger King and KFC at the Coppins Bridge location.

Plans would see the former electronics store divided into two, with the kitchen showroom filling a 1,800 square foot unit.

Maplin closed its Island store, and subsequently its online brand, in 2018.

You can view the signage plans, 22/00954/ADV, on the Isle of Wight Council’s planning register. Comments can be submitted until July 15.
