We’ve got some great opening week deals in store, so we’re hoping for a good turnout. We’re pleased that a Team GB athlete is able to help us celebrate the opening of our store in Harrogate, and we’re looking forward to greeting new customers when the store opens.
We’re also excited about our cheese and wine tasting event due to take place in August and the deals on offer during our opening week.
