The Corner Shop Makes A Come Back In Girnigoe Street

Alistair and Vivian Davis reopened the shop in Girnigoe Street after taking it over recently.  They set to and carried out repair work to floors and decoration.  The result is a very fresh and airy bright small local store.  They will stock many of the usual grocery items but are expanding into other areas to make the venture viable.  One side of the shop will have a range of craft and art materials and later will add art work for sale.  In addition the shop will sell a range of vegetarian, vegan and health foods.  Alistair and Vivian reckon they need to diversify the product range of the small shop if they are to survive in the cut throat grocery trade.    A sandwich counter will have a range of food for lunch times.  

Supplying as many items as possible for people who want to get things without going all the way to the supermarket or town centre is their aim.   The shop has been in Girnigoe Street for many years with different owners.  It is in a great location next to the government offices and at the end of Willowbank making it one of the busy thoroughfares of Wick.  Many people walk by on their way to the town centre or home from work.   As they say their are three things you need to succeed in that business -  location location, location and they certainly seem to have that.

The Corner Shop In Girnigoe Street seems to be sure of another successful phase in its history with a new generation.
