British Corner Shop: A Taste of Home

22nd April 2015

The world is an amazing place to explore! With social mobility at an all time high and the travel industry booming, more and more of us are heading out into the unknown to see the sights or even start new lives abroad. Being an expat brings endless new opportunities, however, it isn’t uncommon for homesickness to take its toll and leave you hankering for some British home comforts. You never know what you’re going to miss until it's no longer available!

Living in a new country means you're far from your usual high street shops and stores that cater to your every desire, and although the new shops may have exciting alternatives, sometimes you just need those products you’ve known and loved for years.

British Corner Shop is the number one online supermarket for British expats, travellers and others who simply appreciate British products. Whatever it is you’re missing whilst living abroad, they’ll deliver direct to your door, wherever you are in the world – without costing you an arm and a leg.

British Corner Shop

With a range of 10,000 food, drink, toiletry and household products, you’ll find all those old favourites – whether it’s crumpets that are crying out to be toasted and eaten with a slab of butter, the Branston Pickle that’s been missing from your sandwiches, your Sunday roast's favourite side dish, Paxo Sage and Onion Stuffing , plus so much more.


There’s also a fantastic collection of chilled products available for certain European countries, making it easier than ever to fry up some classic British bacon or sneak a chunk of your favourite Cheddar cheese! British Corner Shop go to great lengths to bring their customers seasonal produce sourced directly from a selection of West Country providers who pride themselves on the quality of their fare.

They’ve been kind enough to offer Cotton Traders customers an exclusive £15 off their first order (over £75), so check out their shop at and see what takes your fancy! Just be sure to enter promotional code BCSCOTTONBLOG at the checkout to make the most of your discount.
