A New Shopping Destination Unveiled: HUDSON’S Stratford-upon-Avon
A New Concept for an Antiques Centre
Stratford-upon-Avon is now home to a distinctive shopping destination, HUDSON’S. Located in the former ‘Bonds’ building on Evesham Road, HUDSON’S opened its doors to the public on September 1, 2023. Considering its impressive size of 16,000 square feet, spread over two floors, the store is an embodiment of space and grandeur. It hosts 45 esteemed decorative antique and vintage dealers, offering an exquisite blend of antique, vintage, and modern items.
The visionary behind HUDSON’S, James Hudson, has drawn from his extensive career experience and personal passions to create this one-of-a-kind shopping destination. With a background in food and drink, including training as a chef and over 15 years in the world of antiques, Hudson saw an opportunity to redefine the concept of an antiques centre. He envisions the store as a hub that serves a new generation that appreciates mixing the quality and sustainability of vintage antique items with modern pieces to add character to their homes.
Community Commitment and a Unique Shopping Experience
An essential aspect of HUDSON’S mission is its unwavering commitment to the community. The store has provided employment opportunities to many talented and experienced individuals who faced job loss when Bonds closed its doors. This underscores HUDSON’S dedication to supporting local talent and fostering a sense of unity within the community.
Each visit to HUDSON’S promises a fresh experience, thanks to the ever-evolving inventory and the diverse range of carefully sourced items from across the globe. With options to suit every pocket, from one-of-a-kind antique furniture pieces to vintage homewares, soft furnishings, art, and gifts, finding something truly unique is guaranteed.
Relax and Recharge at the HUDSON’S Café
In addition to its impressive selection of antique and modern homeware, HUDSON’S offers a relaxed and dog-friendly café experience. Visitors can savour the delicious home-cooked dishes, artisan pizza, nutritious salads, and expertly crafted barista coffee in beautifully styled surroundings. Alternatively, a takeaway service is available for those on the move. The café experience is already proving popular, adding another dimension to the shopping experience.
Grand Opening Celebration Event
To celebrate its opening, HUDSON’S is hosting a launch celebration event on October 13th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is open to the public and attendees can look forward to welcome drinks, canapés, and exciting giveaways. A highlight of the event will be the presence of Adi Higham from BBC’s “The Bidding Room” and “The Antique French Farmhouse”, who will be there to meet guests.
James Hudson and the entire HUDSON’S team are thrilled to invite the local community and visitors to explore this unique shopping destination. Whether you have a passion for antiques, are seeking modern home furnishings, or simply want to enjoy a delightful café experience, HUDSON’S is open and ready to welcome you at Dodwell Trading Estate, Evesham Road, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 9ST.
