Firstly visitors to the Factory Shop on Britannia Way will receive up to 70% saving during the sale between Saturday 7th September at 10am and Saturday 14th September at 5pm.

Secondly they will see the outlet re-branded after finding out it's the biggest shop type in the UK. With a minimum 1/2 million pieces of cutlery always in stock visitors are now welcome to the  'Arthur Price Lichfield Store'.

Simon Price, Arthur Price CEO said: "Our Factory Shop has been a part of the city's retail landscape for many years and as with all shops you sometimes get chatting to customers. One Saturday morning I was working in the shop and I got talking to a customer about the origins of the shop. The conversation moved onto facts and figures and he asked me how many items were in the shop. I replied at least 1/2 million and he asked me if it was the biggest in the UK?"

"This got me thinking. We are biggest UK-based manufacturer of cutlery. As a conservative estimate we always have 500,000 pieces in the shop - anything from a single spoon for 20p to a gold-plated 88 piece canteen for £8,000.

The store is at the Arthur Price headquarters in Lichfield on the Britannia Industrial Estate nearby the Royal Mail Sorting Office. There is ample free parking immediately outside saving you parking pennies but also making it easier to load your vehicle and staff are able to sell all items in the Arthur Price range.

So although you might not find Simon amongst all the cutlery why not pay a visit to the Arthur Price Factory Shop, the UK's largest cutlery shop right here in Lichfield!
