Shop changes in the village
« on: August 07, 2017, 06:19:37 pm »
All change in the village I believe .
Post office is closing and moving to dry cleaners in October.
Post office to become furniture shop.
The opticians which closed some time ago, is to become a barbers shop.
All very interesting

A furniture shop in the post office?  Really?  Not an obvious choice.  How much furniture can they display in such a small shop.

Update on the above. The move of the post office to share premises with the dry cleaners is, apparently 80% finalised, according to a spokesperson for the dry cleaners. The two concerns will continue to operate in the one location. They are hoping for an October move.

Thanks steevey, I have just spoken to the Wing Wah owner who confirmed that they are closing. I was told a date has not been set yet, and until then they are continuing to operate.

I hope they relocate nearby, I have been going there since the 1970's - 655134 is ingrained firmly in my head!

Interesting to see a furniture shop will be opening along that parade of shops. Its where Mr Brown had a furniture and carpet shop in the '60s or so. Now I'm showing my age!
