Congratulations to New Creation Christian Book & Coffee Shop, Tiverton, which celebrated 20 years of trading on October 4th this year. The milestone anniversary was marked by knocking prices in the café back to their 1988 levels.
Speaking to the Exeter Express & Echo, Maureen Rendell, one of the shop’s trustees, explained:
“We have copies of the very first menu and although it has changed little over the years we can see that prices have gone up by nearly four times. When we opened, a cup of coffee was just 25p.” …
“It’s a way of saying ‘thank you’ to all our loyal customers who have supported us over the years,” Mrs Rendell said. “Without them the shop would not be here.”
“Unfortunately, we can not do the same in the bookshop end, although customers will find that we try to keep our prices as competitive as possible.”
