A Bideford man has opened up a brand new shop near the pannier market.

A Bideford man has taken the plunge and opened the shop he has always dreamed of.

Peter Lawrence, 59, had always wanted to own a vinyl record shop, and when the opportunity arose, it was ‘now or never’.

Mr Lawrence officially opened Market, Music and Toys at 26 Market Place, Bideford on Friday.

The shop will stock a variety of vinyl as well as CDs, Blu-rays and DVDs. It will also sell toys including Lego, Mechano and Hot Wheels.

Mr Lawrence said: “We’ll also be selling lots of pocket money toys too.”

Market, Music and Toys will be open Tuesday-Saturday, 9.30am-4.30pm.
