‘Good Food’ is a local grocery shop and deli, valued by its community, profitable and most importantly, makes all those involved proud. It is an inviting community space stocked with high quality, locally produced, everyday items at everyday prices bringing something different to the range of shops that currently occupy the main shopping parades in and around the Corbett Estate encourage similar businesses to open as we have seen elsewhere across the borough. It encourages residents to buy locally produced items.
