Stein, television presenter and author of several cookbooks, will open The Padstow Bookseller in the Cornish port town of Padstow on 15th March after harbouring a long time “dream” to open a bookshop.
He is going into business with Cornish bookshop owner Ron Johns, who will own 50% of the venture, while Rick and his wife Sarah Stein will own a 25% stake each.
As well as authoring a number of cookbooks, Stein already owns four restaurants in Padstow, a fish and chip shop in Falmouth and a fish and chip shop in Newquay, while Johns owns three other bookshops in Falmouth, St Ives and Dartmouth.
Padstow has not had a bookshop since the last one closed five years ago. MORE
