With the extra shop space the owner thought it was a good opportunity to help St Albans residents by providing essential groceries to the local community.

Owner Emile Mehmet said: “We’re focusing on high-quality essentials - basically things I haven’t been able to find in the shops, such as bread, eggs, milk, cheeses, and a small selection of fruit and veg that changes daily.

“As always we’re working mainly with small, local suppliers, and we’re only offering things that you can’t find in the supermarkets.
