A NEW health food shop is opening on Winchester High Street later this month.

Grape Tree, a chain selling nuts, dried fruits and supplements, will start trading on Friday, July 19. 

The store is currently undergoing refurbishment in the building where Shuropody, the high street shoe shop and chiropractor, closed its doors to customers in June, with no warning.

A sign in the shopfront window was advertising job vacancies for those interested in working at the new store.

Grape Tree founder Nick Shutts told the Chronicle: “We are delighted to be opening in Winchester.

“We are looking forward to bringing our Grape Tree feel-good food message to the town and to welcoming customers into the store.”
