13 – 15 Walcot Street, Bath, BA1 5BN Tel: 01225 311811 Web: coopers-stores.com Coopers is a family-owned business that has been trading since 1948. Back then, founder Harry Cooper ran a small shop in south London. His son Paul joined the business in 1973 and now operates from a large showroom right in the centre of Bath. In that era Coopers sold (and repaired) lots of small appliances as well as TVs, radiograms (remember them?), washing machines and cookers. In the early days no-one even dreamt of owning a dishwasher or tumble drier. Today Coopers specialises in all kitchen appliances, built in and free-standing, top-end luxury as well as basic, catering for every taste... even white goods are now multi-colour. Over the years Coopers has built a strong reputation – great products; fantastic, friendly knowledgeable staff; and highly competitive, fair prices. This is independent retailing at its best, it is values-driven and customer focused, this is a real antidote to the soulless online shopping experience.
