From their bustling store in the quintessential market town of Northallerton, North Yorkshire, Mr Lewis & Mr Cooper built a world-renowned gourmet emporium shipping hampers packed with local delicacies and gastronomic delights far and wide. Lewis & Cooper's founding partners were sticklers for detail (the Managers’ quarters were furnished with a discreet window which enabled Mr Lewis to keep a constant vigil over his shop floor) and insisted on stocking only the finest foods, hampers and wines.
from the same site at 92 High Street and with a façade little changed, although the founders would not recognise the extensive interior that houses the current day Food Hall, Delicatessen, Wine Store, Tea Rooms and Hamper Department. Lewis & Cooper remains a family-run concern, with a direct lineage linking the present owners to Mr Lewis himself.
Lewis & Cooper today is a multi-award winning independent gourmet food retailer with stores packed with the most flavoursome foodie treats, fine wines, delicious gift baskets and sumptuous food hampers.
In 1999 Lewis & Cooper celebrated it's centenary with the opening of a Tearooms in the former manager's apartment above the shop in Northallerton, celebrating the best of fresh local produce with stunning views over Northallerton's traditional High Street.
