Your Favourite Shop: ‘Friendly service’ at Ilfracombe fruit and veg shop

Joseph Bulmer

The greengrocer that goes the extra mile, say customers.


“The service is always friendly and often there is a joke to share and the girls know most of their customers.

A chair is always available for any customer needing a bit of a rest and there is an excellent free delivery service.

“They also because they do a free delivery. When my mum was alive they would deliver to her and the delivery man always used to take it in for her, chatted to her and made sure she was all right.

Sometimes they even offer to take awkward items such as library books along with the delivery to save people carrying them.”
