AN ITALIAN restaurant has opened a shop inside its store.

Giuseppe’s, based in Old Market, Nailsworth opened a shop last week next to the restaurant selling oils, drinks, cured meats, ice-cream and more.

"We are very pleased with it " said Sarah Albiston, who owns the business along with her husband Giuseppe. 

"The shop mainly sells products we already use in the restaurant.

"These products are hard to buy so we thought it would be a good idea to be able to sell them in the shop. 

"We had the space for the shop and thought why not?

"Although its opening was delayed due to the pandemic we are very happy with the shop. 

"We are fortunate to have a lot of regulars at our restaurant who have supported us over the last few days. 

"It also gives me more of a chance to speak to customers, something I love."

The shop is open from 10am to 3pm on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 

The owners at Giuseppe’s have also recently applied for a licence to sell alcohol in the shop. 

Representations can be made in writing to Stroud District Council until this coming Friday, July 22.
