A businessman who had so many Bridlington customers visiting his Scarborough shop has decided to re-locate to the town
Gary Seston has opened the Scoop and Save shop on Prospect Street after many requests from customers who travelled to his shop which was based at the Scarborough Indoor Market.
The Prospect Street shop is part of the former Half Moon pub which closed down last year.
Gary, who runs the business with his wife Julie, said: “I visited the old scoop shop on the opposite side of Prospect Street before it closed and thought it was a fantastic idea.”
“There is a lot less waste and no packaging, and many customers are now bringing in their own tubs to cut down on single-use plastic bags.” added Gary.
As well as the essentials such as tea. coffee, and breakfast cereals the shop offers dried fruits, nuts, pulses, savoury snacks and a large range of pick and mix sweets.
“The traditional method of shopping has seen a revival in recent years, and by weighing the product yourself it cuts down on plastic and food waste.” said Gary.
“The best-sellers in Bridlington at the moment are pork scratchings and cake mixes, but I am sure there will be seasonal variations.”
