Store aims to offer wine as well as cheese and chocolate
A gourmet cheese and chocolate supplier is hoping to add wine to its list of offerings. The Gourmet Boutique at the corner of Reid and Queen Streets, has applied for a liquor licence. If successful the store will offer a range of wines from Burrows Lightbourn. Owner Bernard Walker said the plan is to provide a range of upscale foods and wine that can be partnered together. “This was a part of the plan from the get-go,” he said. “We want to provide a more complete experience for our customers. “We have partnered with Burrows Lightbourn, and we hope to have everything ready for December 1.” A hearing to determine whether or not Gourmet Boutique’s application is granted will take place on November 21 at 9.15am in Magistrates’ Court No 1.
