We have every confidence the buyers will continue to grow the business and support the local community. Finally, we would like to thank Christie & Co for the handling of our sale.”

He plans to grow the business’s well-established trade.  He comments, “We are pleased to acquire this business and add it to our portfolio. We are looking forward to familiarising ourselves with the residents before looking to implement new ideas. Thank you to Lewis for his assistance on this purchase.”

Lewis Last, Senior Business Agent at Christie & Co who handled the sale, comments, “I am really pleased for my seller Harj and is wife, who for many years have taken a very hands-on approach with the store. For the short term, I understand they will be taking a break before looking at future investments/projects. I wish them all the best.

“There is potential for the new owners to grow the turnover, whether it be a shop re-design, further promotional stock, or extending the opening hours. I am excited to see the new buyers implement their ideas and look forward to catching up with them in the future.”
