It’s been all change at two Richmond food businesses in recent weeks which have changed hands.

In King Street, one of the town’s first independent coffee shop, Sip has been acquired by Wendy and Dan Postgate.

The couple live in Richmond and have been regular customers of Sip over the years.

The couple said that when the opportunity to take it on arose, they jumped at the chance.

In Finkle Street, sandwich shop Tasty Macs, now has a new face behind the counter.

Ian Rowland Hill has taken on the business from Steve and Ann Smallman who have retired after ten years at the chopping board.
