Gainsborough store bringing the community together

Gainsborough’s Uphill community has a new local store after residents called for one to be reinstated in the area.

The new community shop at the Gainsborough Uphill Community Centre has reopened after a period of four years without a tenant. It comes after almost two thirds of local residents told us it was highly-important to have a local shop in the area.

Local resident Eric Aldogan has been handed the keys to the store and is using the shop as a community convenience store selling bread, milk and other convenient products.

People in the area have struggled recently with older people having to walk long distances to the nearest store. But with Eric’s new shop, residents have been praising the store even giving Eric hugs and thanking him.

He said: “It’s been a long process to get here but we finally have our store. People have responded fantastically and I have had people hug me and say thank you for me being here as I’ve helped their lives.

“It’s a very handy shop and it is close in the community for people to get bread and milk. It really helps residents.

“We’ll be having fresh fruit and vegetables soon and we take advice from customers for what they want us to sell.”

The new shop comes a year after the community led a £90,000 refurbishment of the centre. For more information on activities at the centre, search ‘Gainsborough Uphill Community Centre’ on Facebook.
