Artisan café chain Creams British Luxury is to open two stores in Kent.

A store in Canterbury is set to open this month, while one in the Bluewater shopping centre will open in February 2017.

The stores will be the first in the county for the chain, which has outlets in Yorkshire cities Leeds and Huddersfield, as well as Manchester.

A marble counter and crystal chandelier will display the Creams gift range, which will be on offer in both stores.

The business said the counter will draw in shoppers to purchase colourful macarons, handmade chocolates, cupcakes, and cake pops.

“Creams want to share passion for high quality and to make available luxurious yet affordable products," the business says in a statement on its website.

“Whatever the occasion, the giving and receiving of gifts is an exhilarating experience. We provide this service to all shoppers in shopping centres and high-footfall retail parks as we put theatre into our services and gift wrapping, providing shoppers with unique products and service.”
