About the employer

Half coffee shop, wine bar and brasserie; half interior design superstore. The Emporium is genuinely unlike anywhere you have seen or been before and its Parisian Grand Cafe style appeals to everyone.

Housed in an old Methodist Chapel, lavishly and lovingly converted to create three huge floors of eating, drinking and shopping, The Emporium is a haven from the mass production, hard sell ethos that has overtaken the rest of the world. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal and that’s the way we like it.
