A Lichfield shop is celebrating after finding out it is the largest cutlery store in the UK.

The Arthur Price Factory Shop will be celebrate with a sale starting on Saturday (September 7).

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 half-a-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.”
