I have just discovered that this lovely store has gone into administration, destroyed by crippling business rates and the online shopping competition. My wife worked there some years ago and enjoyed being part of the ethos of the store. People are going to miss the...More

Surprised to see a small Dept., store here as the town is not very large. Quite a variety of things here. I bought some nice serviettes. Nice to see things here that you don't see in larger stores. Very friendly staff.
