For instance, the village can be very busy over the festive Christmas / New Year break. The business operates 7 days a week between 9am ? 5pm, and extra trade can be obtained by opening in the evenings especially during the peak summer season.

Main Deli; Preparation / Storeroom;Display Cabinets ;Communal WC; Dustbin Areas.
