I would be delighted if you could mention a local, privately owned, toy and electrical shop in Belper. N & M Bargains, Bridge Street, Belper, DE56 1AY.
In the days running up to Christmas this well lit, cheerfully decorated shop offered anyone free tea or coffee and a mince pie.
I popped in, having read the sign outside the door and asked “haven’t you missed free with every purchase?” Nigel and Matthew who own the shop both piped up - a resounding “No, completely free to anyone passing by”.
I have been struck by their customer focus and attention to creating a true local, entrepreneurial shop all year round, but this really “took the biscuit!” - or should I say mince pie!
Anyone could walk in for a reviving cuppa and chat. Totally free!
I really think they deserve a Happy and prosperous New Year - and a mention in the local news. Cheerful goodwill at it’s best.
