The application goes on to state the main operation of the business will be for sales of items in closed and sealed containers but the business may wish to offer product tastings “further down the line”.

It adds that the businesses owners are “keen to be community members, taking part in any initiatives such as Pub Watch”.

The proposed opening hours for the shop are 10am-6pm Sunday to Thursday and 10am to 10pm Friday and Saturday.
