We took another step closer at the weekend to having the new shop/kitchen complete - final painting to doors and windows completed. Its been a challenging year for everyone- attempting to co-ordinate various trades whilst adhering to social distancing has been our main issue. Internally we have the main electrics virtually complete, with just the plumbing and internal fixing to conclude, before we do the internal finishes, walls and floor.
Having secured the equipment for the new refit of the shop/kitchen means that we are hopeful now of opening within weeks. We see this addition to the company as significant as it will allow us the opportunity to do extensive new product development, whilst providing the public with a full retail outlet of our entire range. We will actively encourage foot fall, not just to make purchases from the core range but to sample any new products which are being trailed on a visit to the shop. There is no better feedback than that direct from public interaction. This is something we have discovered internally since having regular tasting panels. We strive to be the best and this will assist in this process.
