Sandwich bar and boutique store see town centre walkway thriving.
IT’S a full house for Gammon Walk with every unit in the town centre walkway now occupied.
Boutique store Emilia Bea opened its doors three weeks ago, and sandwich bar Nom Noms began trading on Thursday.
Charlotte Butler, who owns Nom Noms with her partner Irfan Kalaycilar, said local traders had been really supportive of the start-up.
“People in Gammon Walk are so friendly, they have all come to say hello and wish us luck,” she said.
“It’s a really nice part of the town and it’s nice it’s all full up now.
“We have a whole range of take-away food from pizza slices to baguettes and we hope it will be good for the town.”

Tony Mutch, who runs Emilia Bea with his wife Clare, said the first few weeks of businesses had been a success.
The couple have a background in retailing fine jewellery and decided a new boutique would be a good edition to Barnstaple’s offerings.
He said: “Gammon Walk has a nice mix of retailers, with plenty of independent businesses.
“Parts of the town centre are struggling so it’s nice to see this area of the town doing well.”
