Ian Johnstone is celebrating four years in business as the owner of The Shopkeeper Store in Market Place, Dunmow.

He has been personally selecting items for sale for seven years - he started an online business three years before he opened his bricks and mortar shop.

He said business has been good.

“We’ve got loyal customers who have supported us during the lockdown and have been shopping locally which is great.
