Stray’s Coffee in Oakham opened in October of 2019. Having been an appliances store for many years, one of our biggest challenges was how to bring some of the Stray’s ‘feel’ of Newark to a very different building.

As mentioned elsewhere on this website, Mat is a jack-of-all and as such, is the project manager for shopfits, amongst other things!So that means planning the shop layout and workflow, sourcing the materials and managing the job. The idea of creating ‘spaces’ within a single room, was softened, by using scaffold boards, giving the effect of a room that has always been there. We went for vintage lighting, using highly efficient, yet very effective LED bulbs throughout, to establish the ‘old’ feel of the Newark brand, but the look as a whole is more contemporary.

While we’re not trying to replicate Newark, we do want it to feel like Stray’s and hopefully, we’ve managed to do that…

If it ain't broke...

Our way has always been to grow our leaders organically from within the team. Oakham is no exception and as early as first interviews, Mat felt that Steph would rise to the challenge fairly quickly – she did…
