A NEWSAGENTS has closed for a refurbishment and its owners said fresh food will be "at the heart" of it.

Fresh food is at the heart of the store and we hope customers will love it."  

Once the refurbishment is complete, Martin's opens from 6am until 5pm every day except Sunday when its hours are reduced to 7am until 1pm.
