A couple from Napton have shown that a mix of fresh produce, everyday items, “little luxuries” and competitive prices can make a shop successful – as well providing a village hub.
It took months of negotiations with their bank and the Post Office to show that a business plan for Napton Village Stores and Post Office could work. But now Adam and Hannah Slade are celebrating one year of their successful business.
Hannah said:“It has been hard work, but it is worth it to see the business we’ve built up.
“Adam gets up everyday at five to bake the bread and the only day there is no bread or papers is Christmas.”
