Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­nealy

A much-loved Cam­bus­lang in­sti­tu­tion has been put up for sale.

McCal­lum’s Cafe on Main Street was listed for sale on Fri­day as own­ers Wul­lie and Senga McCal­lum pre­pare for re­tire­ment.

The pair, who opened the busi­ness in 1975, will con­tinue to op­er­ate as nor­mal un­til it is sold.

Hun­dreds of peo­ple took to so­cial me­dia over the week­end to wish the cou­ple well, with many of­fer­ing their fond mem­o­ries of the cafe. One woman wrote on Face­book:“Good luck Wul­lie and Senga. McCal­lum’s is part of Cam­bus­lang his­tory.”

A sec­ond cus­tomer said:“Many mem­o­ries in McCal­lum’s through the years. I will miss Senga and Wul­lie and Au­drey and staff. En­joy your re­tire­ment, you will be missed.”

Mr McCal­lum told the Re­former: “We are not walk­ing away un­til the busi­ness is sold. That could take three months, six months or a year.

“We will con­tinue to op­er­ate as nor­mal un­til such a time as the busi­ness is sold.

“We have been here for 40 years and there have been so many won­der­ful peo­ple who have been with us over the years.

“We have been over­whelmed by the re­sponse from cus­tomers who have been very loyal to us.”

The busi­ness has been listed for sale by Bruce&Co and of­fers are wel­comed in the re­gion of £159,950.

The list­ing states:“The busi­ness is now well es­tab­lished and has built up a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing one of the area’s best places to en­joy a light meal or lunch with friends.”
