New Princes Dock store will even host a farmers market

IT could be a bit of a lonely life living in a high rise Princes Dock flat: staring out to sea one moment, excitedly listening out for the intercom and the arrival of the Ocado chap the next.

But now your grocery needs will be met with bells on, right on your waterfront doorstep.

Bean Coffee has opened a “concept store” on the dock, for them the first of its kind, with the emphasis on local produce and posh stuff. There are even plans for a farmers market in there.

“The Store”, will retain the food and beverage offering of a traditional convenience store, it says here, whilst complementing this with other amenities including dry cleaning and courier services, an off licence and a florist. 

Bean Coffee also has units in St Paul’s Square, Exchange Station, Liverpool Innovation Park, Brunswick Business Park, and other locations in Manchester. But none of them have got one of these.
The newly refurbished store also includes a ‘pop-up’ area which will play host to craft retailers and bakers and that Friday farmers’ market.

Jon Whyte, director and co-founder of Bean Coffee said: “There’s lots of people on-site at Liverpool Waters, whether they are workers, residents or visitors, and we absolutely want to cater for their varying needs. We will be bringing together the everyday services they need under one roof, right on their doorstep. The Store will also be a great opportunity for us to collaborate with other independent, local businesses - we’re really excited to open our doors.”
