The Cook’s Cupboard comes to Port Elgin with Grand Opening

While The Cook’s Cupboard is new to Port Elgin, the owners, the Fulford family, have a long history in the region.

Ninety years ago, in 1932, amid the Great Depression, Fulford’s Hardware was born in Owen Sound. The principles were simple: work hard, know your product, and respect everyone who walks through your door with the respect due him or her. From there, the business grew.

Today, four generations later, the Fulfords built upon those core values and expanded to include Fulfords: Kitchenware-Bathware-Hardware in Owen Sound and The Cook’s Cupboard in downtown Southampton and now also in Port Elgin (formerly Little’s Furniture).

Each location offers a unique shopping experience, specializing in Quality Kitchenware, Cookware and Specialty Gourmet Foods & Ingredients. Whether you are a professional chef, an aspiring cook, or a bride to be … you will find the widest and best selection at The Cook’s Cupboard.

“Our goal is to provide one of the best selections of quality kitchenware anywhere in Ontario,” Jim Jr. says. “We search the world for the best products. We attend trade shows, looking for the best possible products available that will meet our standards of quality from reputable companies with the best prices for our customers.”

“We are also excited to extend our Gift and Wedding Registry, and professional Knife Sharpening, to Saugeen Shores,” says David Fulford at the Port Elgin store. “Whether it’s the discerning bride who registers, or her guests searching for that perfect gift, our team will help navigate through the huge selection of products and make choosing that special gift easy.” Still can’t decide what to give?
