Important Announcement

Jo, the Manager's new leaving date is Friday 8th November as it appears that the French red-tape has been overcome.  Jo will receive her good-bye presentation at 4pm if you wish to join us.

Late Night Shopping event

We are certainly getting into the festive mood here at the shop as we continue our plans for our late night shopping event this coming Monday from 5pm-8pm.  Lots of new tasty new treats, some cracking wine will be available to try along with some lovely gifts to buy so we do really hope you will be able to join us as we countdown to Christmas!  A wonderful array of goodies and gifts await.

The big news is that two of our volunteers and Jo, the manager, have been training extensively on the new EPOS till and so the countdown begins with the new system being launched on Friday 1st February. As for customer accounts, this will be done in a slightly different manner. Don’t worry - if you have one then you still do but it will be all done electronically and instead of a calculator and a myriad of paperwork to keep track it will all be printed at a click of a button - marvellous stuff! It also means that all items have to be put through the till to be logged against the individual account.

We will also be having a card reader so it is all very exciting as the shop continues to rocket into the 21st Century but please do bear with us if we encounter any teething problems or UFOs!
A huge, huge thank you is also extended to the other volunteers who have stepped in as cover to allow Jo to take part in the training and keep the shop open. We couldn’t have done it without you all and your never ending support! We look forward to serving you with an efficient beep!
