Default Brit shop closed

Hi does anyone on the Gold Coast have any ideas why the British shop in Robina has shut or if they have relocated somewhere?

I have heard there is a sweet shop in Sanctuary cove I think that sells some bits any ideas anyone?

Unfortunately Im desperate for some Picalllili.

Have you tried Coles supermarkets for the piccalilli, they have a special section for overseas products, and I have bought it there in the past, Try one of the larger stores for the best success

Thanks for that. The craving isnt too bad but I do love a Sausage roll or a nice fresh lamb roll with it in. I have tried the ones from here but find they are too mustardy as opposed to picalli if that makes any sense ha

Thought that might be the case. They did have another one nearer Brisbane so not sure if that one has also closed.

I do pop into our locals Coles every so often but have never seen it in the Upper Coomera one. Which one do you visit?

I think she retired, I read on this site that she had owned the shop for quite a while! Like the others have said, coles is great for international foods. Good luck with the search!

I heard that the people who ran the Robina shop were going to sell stuff at Carrara Market.
Not sure how true that is but maybe someone will see them there and let us know.

The rent on the shop in Robina was extortionate compared to the amount she took. Last I heard she was thinking about having a stall at Carrara Market but don't know if she has yet. She has another shop up towards Brissie. I'll do a search and find it for you but you can get loads of stuff in Coles. In our store it's next to the organic and baby stuff. Never been down that aisle until a week or so ago and bumped into HP sauce and stuff. Walked past quickly Hubby likes the mustard pickles just as much as he liked Piccalli so not bothered and I don't like Piccalli I used to make it and it wasn't hard, but don't have the recipe now.
