Thank You Very Much!

All of us here at The Whalley Wine Shop want to say thank you very much to all our customers. At 10pm  tonight, Christmas Eve, we closed the doors on the busiest day in our history! Since we opened over three and a half years ago, today has been the single most busiest day we’ve ever had! And we’ve thoroughly enjoyed it! It’s been amazing! We’ve been buzzing all day!

But most of all we hope that over the next few days you really enjoy the wines, beers and spirits that we have recommended to you and that you have bought from us. We hope we have done your wonderful custom justice!!

Now, we are completely knackered! And if you don’t mind, we’re going to have a couple of days off to recharge our batteries ahead of the New Years Eve rush! In the meantime we hope you are going to have the most fabulous Christmas you have ever had!

Thank you SO much,

Tom, Dan , Matt and Jen.
