This licensed retailer of wines, beers and spirits in Commercial Street, Norton has the appearance from the outside of a small off-licence, but nothing could be further from the truth. The premises are surprisingly extensive and contain a wide range of drinks comparable with local supermarkets.
Always available are special offers that for price match, and often outmatch, supermarket specials. The staff are all familiar faces, have a remarkable knowledge of the stock and the same helpful attitude to customers.
The proprietor, Ray King, who has been an active businessman in the area for many years, offers “sale or return” and free glass hire for parties and other events, a 5% student discount as standard, and on Wednesdays a 5% OAP discount.
Opening at 6am (6.30 Sundays) this store caters for the early starters with sales of newspapers and magazines as well as alcohol and other refreshments for weary night shift workers. Closes daily at 9pm.
Particularly useful in Norton, where there is no bank and no cash machines, is the cash-back facility at the till available to all customers.
This is an unusually good business, where it is always a pleasure to shop.
