Premier Shop, Petrol Station Shop/Post Office
Both shops stock large ranges of groceries, vegetables, newspapers and other items. The post office is situated within the petrol station (still referred to by residents as ‘the garage’, although the garage is now closed).
Situated just down the main street from the town centre, this shop, dearly loved by residents, offers a remarkable range of reasonably priced goods: stationery, toiletries, greeting cards, toys, jigsaw puzzles and items unlikely to be found in today’s high street chains.
Here you will meet Mr Peter Cook, who arrived as a teenager with his family in 1965 and now owns the shop. In 1965 the shop was primarily a pharmacy but it also served petrol from a pump in front of the shop, tobacco and pipes, fishing tackle, veterinary goods, shot gun cartridges etc.
The shop is well worth a visit, not only to browse for things to purchase but also to learn about its history. Mr Cook loves talking to his customers and, if you have time to spare, a visit is highly recommended.
Mr Cook can be contacted on 01591 610207.
