The business hails from historic downtown Grapevine and offers traditional British foods, such as brandy butter, mince pies, crackers and more. After initially planning to operate the pop-up through the holiday season, British Emporium owner Sheela K. Bailey and Fish & Fizz owner Nick Barkley agreed earlier this month to continue with the two British businesses under one roof.
The original British Emporium has been open for nearly 30 years, according to a news release. Along with offering British goods, the business also hosts community-related events, such as car shows, meet-and-greets with British celebrities, royal celebrations, “Doctor Who” parties and more.
As British Emporium's new location is smaller than the Grapevine store, any item not available at the Richardson location can be brought over from the flagship store, staff said. The business's location at 400 N. Coit Road, Ste. 1908, Richardson, will continue operating Thursday through Sunday from noon-8 p.m., which are the same hours Fish & Fizz is open. 469-703-4457. www.british-emporium.com
