An independent coffee and gift shop located in the centre of Alderley Edge will reopen its doors this week under new ownership.

The Village Green, an independent coffee and gift store on South Street is to reopen under its new identity, Nook & Cranny, following a takeover by 26-year old Anna Williams.

Anna said: "Nook & Cranny will represent more than just a coffee shop; it's a place for people to come together, relax and escape the world for a bit. Our little shop is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the high street, offering a completely unique atmosphere. We are a hidden gem waiting to be discovered!

"I'm incredibly proud to be taking over a business that has a fantastic reputation and is well-loved in the area. Over the past few weeks, we've worked really hard to create a space which is both cosy and inviting, but without losing the charm that locals and visitors have come to love.

"As well as giving our lovely building a makeover, we will also be increasing our opening hours to six days a week and introducing new products to grow our gift shop, whilst still prioritising serving the best quality coffee and food."

Anna takes over the business from Ashley Harbour, who established and ran the coffee shop for almost three years. Ashley added: "The Village Green was such a labour of love for us, and we poured our hearts into building it from the ground up.

"When it came to handing the keys over to someone else, it was important to us that we found someone who shared the same values as us, and that we felt confident would look after our lovely customers.

"We wish Anna all the best, and can't wait to see what the future holds for Nook & Cranny."

The official launch of Nook & Cranny will be on Saturday 6 January.
