Bryher Shop changes hands after 8 years
Bryher Shop is now under new ownership.
Zoe Dan, who has run the store since June 2011, announced on Monday that the official handover has taken place.
Posting a photo of the shop when it opened (right) on social media, she wrote: "So this is where it all started 8 years ago, things have changed so much! Today is the official exchange day where I hand over. I just want to say a big thank you to everyone that has supported the shop and everyone that has helped me make it work."
She went on to thank staff members and wish new owners Mark and Aaron "all the success in the world!" adding: "Oh and don't worry...Tattie cake will still be around!"
The new owners took to Facebook earlier today to say hello.
They said: "Today is our first official day as owners of Bryher Shop. We are delighted / over the moon / gobsmacked / everything you could imagine. Thank you to everyone for your kind words and wishes so far and for your support for the shop. We are very much looking forward to meeting everyone over the coming months.
'We would like to say an enormous thank you to Zoe, for working with us over the last few months to make this happen, and for creating such a brilliant shop.
'We feel unbelievably lucky to be taking on Bryher Shop. The first time we walked in a few years ago we were stunned by the range of goods Zoe had managed to source and stock in such a small space and in a not un-remote spot.
"It is clear that Bryher shop is loved by so many people. We want to continue to offer everyone all of the great things Zoe has sourced over the years. We haven’t any plans for significant changes but we are keen to hear if there’s anything you think we could do that would be beneficial for everyone using Bryher Shop. We will continue the delivery service and are very open to feedback on all aspects.
"We will undoubtedly make the odd mistake over the next few months and we hope you will bear with us while we find our feet. Thank you in advance!
"Most of all, we look forward to meeting everyone and helping you have the best of times on Bryher.'
