Housewares covers ranges from cookware, kitchenware and small electricals to dining, glassware and candles and is one of our most exciting product categories with many lines being sourced directly from the Far East or Europe and exclusive to AIS members.

Whilst traditionally being seen in department stores and independent cookshops there has been a growing expansion of housewares departments into furniture specialists looking to add to customer reasons to visit and garden centres where this is a natural extension to their core business. Such is the completeness of our housewares ranges, whether from major Brands or own sourced, it is possible for an AIS member to set up a department from nothing very easily with the support of our specialist team.
