I saw the business up for sale a couple of years ago. Shame nobody had shown any interest in taking it on.

Sign in the window says it's "closed due to LOCAL COMPETITION". The butcher has started to sell some veg.

He'll probably be happier fishing.

There are three closed shops in the parade now. It's beginning to look a bit like Cliffe High Street.

Is that a greengrocers' apostrophe ?

Pedant, why do you insert a space before your question mark? Didn't they teach punctuation at your school?

No loss to markos! It's sad to say it went down hill years ago , the veg was expensive and old! Flowers totally overpriced and made the area a right mess! Well done the butchers! There's nothing stooping anyone starting a good veg shop in ringmer ,

Sad when a long-established local business fails, but much higher quality veg now available in Ringmer. Dominos Pizza have applied for planning permission for one of the empty shops, and a new greengrocer/florist is negotiating for another. The excellent butcher will cease selling veg when that happens - he is just filling in to help out people who didn't want to have to go to Lewes.

Peasant is right about the butcher. He only started selling veg when Marko's closed and the new tenant there became a florists only. I'd heard Marko has become a lorry driver!!
