New shop to open in St Combs

A local couple will open a closed down shop in St Combs as a grocery shop on Saturday.

Husband and wife Denis and Linda MacDonald will open ‘The Shoppie’ on 2 Gordon Street from 7.00am-7.00pm Monday to Saturday and 9.00am-12.00pm on a Sunday.

The shop will sell all necessities from bread, milk and juice to cigarettes, confectionary and newspapers.

Raffles will be available on Saturday to welcome the introduction of The Shoppie to the village. The winner of the raffle will receive a voucher for a meal for two at the Ban-Car Hotel.

Owner Denis MacDonald said: “We bought the shop in November and have been doing some refurbishment inside since then.

“Both my wife and I are excited that we will be opening the grocery shop and we hope it will be useful to everyone in the village.

“The premises have been used as a grocery shop for the last 40 years and my wife and I wanted to keep to this tradition although we will be independent.

“We have also applied for a license to sell alcohol which we hope we will have soon to sell in the shop.”

Get yourself along to Gordon Street to check out the new shop and take part in the raffle for you chance to win the meal vouchers!
