The buying and selling trend so popular online has come to the high street with the opening of a new shop in Spalding.
Buy It Sell It in Victoria Street is the venture of Shane and Diane Graves, along with Carl Gibson, all three from Boston.
The shop sells a range of goods from digital radios and plasma TVs to computer games and musical instruments.
Shane said: “I worked in a shop similar to this for 15 years so I know the business inside out.
“About five years ago, the person I worked for was thinking of selling the franchise but because Diane and I have three children, we thought it would be too much of a financial risk to take it on.
“But the risk is smaller if you go independent and because of that, we want to do that bit extra so we can give our customers a better services.”
As well as a straight buying and selling service, Buy It Sell It also provides a weekly payment service where customers can pay a 30 per cent deposit on goods and settle the balance within four weeks before taking the goods.
Shane said: “Our main customer base is people who get paid on a week by week basis, but the range of stuff we’ll sell will become quite extensive.
“We’ve had very positive comments from people who said that Spalding has needed a shop like this for a long time where we can source from a wealth of UK wholesalers.”
