Changing faces in Shipston Town Centre
Shipston Town Centre has seen a fair number of changes in recent months, with many new businesses opening as well as some moving on.
Sadly, Rightons Butchers in Sheep Street has now closed. On a positive note, however, Brian Gardner has joined Taylors Butchers, who will be selling lamb from Brian’s Tysoe farm.
Elsewhere in the town, new shops and eateries are becoming established. Two shops have opened in the Granville Court arcade, selling ladies wear and home and garden goods, while El Cafe has moved to Sheldons, expanding its menu and opening hours in the process. Following a short period of closure, The Bower House restaurant will soon re-open under the stewardship of a new chef, while the Coach & Horses has launched a new menu, offering authentic pub food. A new kitchen showroom also opened in Sheep Street earlier this year.
Mayor, Dan Scobie, said: “It’s always sad to see an established business close and it’s a reminder of just how important it is for us to support local shops where we can. Fortunately, we’ve also seen new retailers opening in the town, adding to our vibrant Totally Locally business community. We wish them all every success.”
