Drew, our very own ex-pat, was born in the idyllic Lake District town of Kendal and grew up in Cheshire, England. Leigh was born and raised in the US, but enjoys learning about and experiencing all things British, and travelling there as often as possible.
We opened during the pandemic, when everyone was greatly missing being able to visit friends, family and the beautiful countryside of the UK. Opening our store and filling the shelves with British foods, beverages, books, vinyl and gift items helped to fill that void for us, and hopefully for our many customers who have come through the door since then.
The last two years have exceeded our wildest dreams and expectations. Our customers have become our friends and our staff has become our family.
We can't wait to see where the next few years take this little dream of ours.
Leigh and Drew Hodgson
