Just in case you’re missing some of those UK Comforts like Monster Munch, Angel Delight and Shreddies, don’t panic, you won’t have to fill a suitcase up with them next time you go back to the UK … because Nic and Ian, coming out of London and Essex, have opened this awesome Discount Store just up from the Kapparis Roundabout, stocking all the things you miss.
Now, Nic grew up in the market world, her father a market trader and a bit of a Del Boy, trading in just about any Swag he could buy and sell for a living … Nic of course worked with him on the markets out East Ham and Romford way, part time while she was at school then as it’s in the blood and they have a really good contact for British Greeting Cards, the inevitable just happened … The shop is well laid out, bigger than it looks from the outside, with hundreds of items imported from the UK on display, lets cover just a few of my faves.
