Internal "demolition" work started in earnest on Monday 19th May and is now continuing at pace. Having gutted the inside almost completely it is amazing how much space is available and makes one realise how inefficiently that space was used previously. The aim is still to complete all refurbishment within 4 weeks followed by restocking for a week. This means that, all being well, a newly equipped shop should be open by the end of June, but with one small caveat - the legal process is still on going and contracts are yet to be signed.

But let's be positive, Spar are doing a huge amount of refurbishment work and they are unlikely to make that investment and not open.
