Callum Pilgrim, who's been the store manager for two and a half years, said: "Across the store we refreshed, redecorated and fixed the roof, which has had a lot of leaks, we also extended the shop floor which has allowed us to increase the size so customers can get more than they want.

The new changes to the store was also as a result of customer feedback.
