There are currently four shops for sale in the village and one closed. Whilst in many ways this reflects a national trend, none of these retailers sell products that you can buy from the internet – so that is not why the current owners are calling it a day. We know that there are problems at times finding parking places and CRA is working on providing suggestions to TRDC for improvements. However, if new owners are not found we will have empty shops. It is likely that these will not be the last unless something is done to encourage us all to use our local shops. CRA would welcome ideas as to how this might be achieved. In the meantime – use it or lose it !
