Local residents have welcomed the return of their favourite chippy with the reopening of Shards Fryer at the All Saints Square shopping centre , Shard End.
The popular fish and chip shop, which originally opened more than 15 years ago, was closed for over 12 months during a multi-million pound redevelopment scheme – which, in addition to the shopping centre, has created 191 new houses, a library and community facilities.
Andy Browne, Development Manager, Stoford Retail who developed the shopping centre said “We had to demolish the old units to make way for the new facilities but I think everyone agrees it was worth the wait.”
Marino Stavrou, who lives in Solihull and has managed Shards Fryer for around six years said: “The new shop is fantastic! Really lovely – and it is great to see all our regular customers again.”
