Our name is changing.....

If your a fellow tweeter you might have noticed that we changed our twitter name a wee while ago now and like wise on Facebook.

The blog however has been a bit behind.....with very good reason! Our new website has been getting created especially just for us and will also be the home to the new blog.

So before the switch happens for real I wanted to announce our new name here and also what we'll look like so you know its still us.....just looking smarter!

We wanted to call our business something that will really stand out and be different. Our heart and souls are going into the business and we want to show that we are really proud of it.

Those of you who are local to Birmingham may have heard of a series of books by Alton Douglas that document how Birmingham looked over the last few hundred years through old photographs. There is one dedicated to Birmingham shops and we noticed that all the traditional shops from the 1800's and early 1900's are all named after their owners. No matter what they were selling be it meat, fish, fruit and veg or clothes all the shops had their owners surname above the door. 

So that's what we decided to do too. My maiden name is Guthrie and my new surname (through marriage;)) is Ghani so we will be called.........dddddddrum roll.....

We want to show our customers that we are proud to put our names on our business and that we have those values of a traditional shop keeper who sources the best products, provides value for money and gives good honest advice and help to make sure every customer is happy and satisfied with the service they receive. 

You might notice this little icon around as well......

And our colours are this lovely mix, shown here in some bunting! 

So welcome to our new business! The finishing touches to the website are getting worked on right now so call back soon to find out where to find us. Follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook for all the updates too!

Thank you :) x x x x
