Costcutter (and the Post Office) in the Market Place is closing from October 14th to November 9th and will re-open as a Co-op.
However, you will still be able to buy a lot of what you need in the village.
Barrow News, just round the corner from Costcutter, obviously has newspapers, magazines, cigarettes, sweets, greetings cards etc but did you know you can also post your parcels here via Hermes at a fixed price of £2.95 for up to 5 kilos. Sue and Shane also stock milk, some stationery and gifts.
During the closure, Ben and Sarah at Sargeant's Butchers will be stocking milk, bread and vegetables along with other staple products such as butter, cheese, pasta etc as well as their usual fresh meat and home baked products.
