ONE of Goring’s oldest independent businesses has shut.
Nappers Fine Foods in High Street, which was founded by William Henry Napper about 100 years ago, ceased trading following a closing-down sale last week.
It is understood that Ram Chandar, who took over the delicatessen and general stores two years ago, chose not to renew his lease.
It comes as Tesco moved another step closer to setting up shop in Goring. The company says it will submit a planning application to convert the former Queen’s Arms pub into an Express convenience store this week.
Campaigners opposed to Tesco’s arrival have claimed this store would take trade away from the independent retailers in the centre of the village.
