The beautiful shop has lots of fresh produce


Worthy of note is the freezers, where you can buy homemade items such as pies or burgers, ready made. This is a new and interesting concept as you can eat well without the hassle of cooking. You can also buy frozen fruit in the portions you want, which reduces the possibility of food waste. The shop is not just for food though, as there is an array of homewares and even clothing.
