SCOOP Wholefoods business partners Kirsten Williamson and Ann Johnson say they are delighted to be able to welcome back their customers after moving ‘next door’ into much larger premises which were formerly leased by Plantiecrub.
The popular delicatessen and wholefoods shop in Lerwick’s Toll Clock Shopping Centre opened its doors again on Monday after a short “test run” the previous Saturday afternoon.
Kirsten said: “We tried to take it quietly at the beginning, we wanted to find our feet during the first couple of days and made sure we were completely ready, and then folk started spreading the word themselves, and Thursday and Friday have been really busy.”
Ann added that the new shop offered more products, had a larger display area for local produce, and offered wider aisles and more room to move.
She said it was fully compliant with social distancing, with hand sanitising, a one-way system and screens at the counter.
