How M & O Fish all started was just under 5 years ago.Russell worked for someone but business wasn't going well.So he was made redundant but what he got a bit of equipment etc.
This was not enough to stay in Darwen Market Hall so we moved in the the 3 day market.
We stayed in there for 2 years until we afford to kit out the stall with new equipment.
That was a good move for us as business was great being back where Russell started in Darwen Market.
We had been thinking for a good year or so to expand to a shop where we live in Horwich.
We had just come back from our family holiday to Cornwall. #busmansholiday .Walking around Horwich shopping when we spotted a Regency Estate agents to let sign up on a shop on winter hey lane.Went in spoke to them and paid the deposit.Then it all fell through but that didn't get us down.
Regency told us of a property coming up in a few month's to let.It was the shop we originally wanted few years ago.
So nothing was stopping us in a M & O Fish journey.
So we got the key's in October and that's when the work really started.
Live wires in the floor, green & pink dado rail.Yes don't ask.
We lived in the shop when not working doing a lot of the work ourself's We even spend Boxing Day in there but we had an opening date of January 13th 2016 so had to be done.
The hardwork was worth it.
Have met some amazing people along the way and now 14 months on still get new customer's in everyday.
That is down to you amazing people who are supporting us in Horwich .
We are lucky to have some lovely customer's who have become friend's and that like sharing their dishes via Facebook or Instagram.
If you wish to follow us on there.
