‘50/50’ shop opens in Stradbroke
A north Suffolk village has received a retail boost after a new shop opened, which will give 50pc of its takings away to customers.
A mother and daughter duo have opened Half Eaches in Stradbroke, which will see them sell customers' second-hand goods for them on a 50/50 basis.
Maxine Southwell and her daughter Yolanda Howard have begun the business at the former Barclays Bank building in Queen Street and hope it will prove popular in the current economic climate.
The shop, which will open six days a week, sells a range of goods including computer games, clothes, books, toys, shoes and household items.
Miss Southwell said they could sell anything apart from electrical items, animals, and large pieces of furniture.

'We know it is not a new idea, but it is new to the village and at the moment villages need every bit of help they can get and we thought it was worth giving it a go. The response has been good so far and buyers and sellers are beginning to come in,' she said.
