“Rugby has always had a great variety of independent retailers and Gallachers is a great example of how someone can turn their dream of running their own business into a reality. As someone who ran their own business here in Rugby before entering Parliament, I know how rewarding that can be and I wish them all the best for the future.”

“It is an exciting venture for us both and the response received so far from people has been great.  We want wine to be fun, not stuffy, we aim to offer a great selection of wine from around the world and having the opportunity to try some of them before you purchase ensures you get that perfect bottle to enjoy.”
