Gutted it never really got going. Can't help feel he's really missed a trick. I sent half a dozen people there and they all came back saying it was shut when they turned up even though they'd checked the times. if they'd become customers and recommended others business can boom from there. Aye the supermarkets jumped on the idea but as i said to him plenty, i'd soon er spend a bit more on some different stuff from an independant local business than in a supermarket, difference is tesco is open when i go there.Aye mate, he's decided to shut down. It was hard graft and not paying for itself. I've been in that situation and knowing when to jump is a skill I wish I had at the time.
Was an awful location anarl and when he told us he was planning on opening the sea road as well as keeping that one i figured it wasn't going to last long. First thing i ever said to him was this place should be around sea road (mostly as it would be closer for us, obviously)
Shame, he seemed a genuine bloke, just either not cut out for running a business or had too much on in his life.
