The Great Cornish Food Store in Truro will find out this month whether it has won a national award.

The store has been shortlisted in two categories (Best Food Hall and Best Newcomer) in the Farm Shop and Deli Awards. The results will be announced at the Farm Shop and Deli Show, which runs from April 16-18 at the Birmingham NEC.

The store’s owner, Ruth Huxley, said: “Everyone at the store was absolutely thrilled to see our name on the shortlist. We are not even two years old yet and still evolving, therefore to be named within the top handful of similar businesses in a major national competition is a huge boost.”

The Great Cornish Food Store, which is located alongside Waitrose, is the first wholly independent retailer to share a space with one of the major supermarkets.
