Telephone box shedworking

We've talked before about repurposing the UK's red telephone boxes for use as shedworking space and great work is being done in this area by The Red Kiosk Company founded by Eddie Ottewell and Steve Beekens which is a national retail chain operating out of these unused iconic gems. The first two (both food and drink businesses) were established on New Road, near Pavilion Gardens in Brighton 2014 and now the idea has been taken up by phone repair outlet Lovefone.

In their box shop in Greenwich (291 Greenwich High Road SE10 8NA, opposite The Mitre pub (10am-5pm, Monday to Friday) you can get your iPhone or Nexus smartphone (or tablet) repaired - they estimate 80% of repairs can be done on the spot but they will also send them away to their repair lab if they need more work . They also offer a free charging service. The plan is to open another half a dozen in London and build up to 35 locations in the next 18 months, including cities outside the capital such as Birmingham, Brighton and Leeds.
