“A great ‘old-fashioned’ shop with lovely family values” has seen RossCo nominated as one of the favourite stores in the Watford area.

The Watford Observer is running a love local business campaign and we are asking readers to nominate My Favourite Local Shop to highlight those who provide excellent customer service and have gone out of their way to help the community during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Langley Way business was proposed by reader Jackie Webster for its “high quality goods matched by fantastic polite and welcoming service inside shop and deliveries”.

Ross Hampton, who has run the store for three-and-a-half years, said: “I am truly honoured to have been nominated for My Favourite Local Shop as it goes to show our local community is appreciative of the long hours and hard work we have put in at RossCo to continue to provide the freshest and best quality products to our customers throughout a very difficult and challenging time.

“It has been great to be able to help provide to the wider community and really appreciate the positive response we have had from our customers about the quality of our products and the service they have received.”

Selling a range of fresh fruit, veg, meat and fish as well as having a delicetessen, RossCo increased the scale and distance travelled by its home delivery service to help customers who were self-isolating during the Covid-19 crisis.
