I find it lovely working in a very small, intimate environment, giving great personal service to fantastic customers.
Frequently recognised as the sunniest town in England, Eastbourne’s long promenades and position right at the start of the South Downs Way have long made it a favourite with visitors and those lucky enough to live there. At Steamer Trading we love the town too, which is why we opened our third shop here, over ten years ago.
We acquired a really handsome building – designed and built for J. Sainbury in 1912 – and set about restoring it to its original glory. When we’d finished, we were thrilled to receive a Civic Trust award for the restoration. The first purpose built self-service store opened in Eastbourne in February 1952
Situated on two floors, we stock a wonderful collection of kitchenware and can offer good advice whatever you’re looking for – from a cooking spoon to an espresso machine.
How to find us
We’re at 10 Cornfield Road, BN21 4QE, less than a minute’s stroll from Terminus Road and alongside the Tourist Information office. There is parking in nearby Hyde Gardens and the surrounding streets or the multi storey car park within the Arndale Centre. We’re not far from the seafront, so on a sunny day, why not park on the promenade for a bracing stroll to see us?
You’ll find our shop directly opposite our friends at Lakeland – so whatever you’re looking for in your kitchen, Eastbourne is a great place to visit.
There are disabled parking bays right alongside our shop on Hyde Gardens. There is good accessibility to our ground floor and a wide staircase to the lower ground floor. However, there is no lift to this floor, so if you do require any assistance, please let us know and we’ll be delighted to help in any way possible.
