New lease of life for sand­wich shop

Macclesfield Express - - NOSTALGIA -

A NEW sand­wich shop has opened on the high street af­ter a lo­cal busi­ness­man stepped in when the old shop closed.

For­mer politi­cian Ed­wina Cur­rie un­veiled Char­lie’s Deli on Ch­ester­gate with owner Ian Pinches.

It’s in the for­mer Livesey’s sand­wich shop which closed in Au­gust just months af­ter open­ing in March. Owner Jo We­selby moved Livesey’s from Bolling­ton where it was renowned for its sand­wiches, but the busi­ness was not vi­able on Ch­ester­gate.

But Ian Pinches, who owns busi­ness con­sul­tancy Cam­bio group, has em­ployed Jo to work in the over­hauled shop, with Alex Blaikie from now-closed cafe Amuse as front of house man­ager.

It’s part of Ian’s big­ger pro­ject to con­vert­ing Ge­or­gian her­itage build­ing Charles Roe House into a GP surgery, art house, events space and cafe.

Jo will work on the cater­ing at the house.

Ian said: “I’ve em­ployed Livesey’s cre­ative tal­ent and Char­lie’s is a new twist to your favourite sand­wich shop.

“This is part of the port­fo­lio with Charles Roe House which we hope will re­ally give the town cen­tre a boost.”
