Business owner Mahesh Odedra said: “After conducting surveys and speaking to customers we are excited to undertake the redevelopment that will allow us to extend our opening hours, revamp the greeting cards and gift selection, and increase space for our deli and food to go.

“This re-development of the store will also help us to increase our efficiency to meet with rising costs that threatens small independent businesses.”

The revamp allows the store to partner up with the multinational retailer Spar which allows for a wider range of independent brands and offering a further choice for competitive shopping.
