A POPULAR fish and chip shop that teased its return in Neilston has delayed its opening.

We previously reported The Village Chippy on Main Street announced that they would be reopening their doors after being temporarily closed.

The traditional chip shop teased its “new and improved” return on social media.

Originally, they were aiming to open on Thursday, May 4, however, they have confirmed due to issues that the much-anticipated opening has been delayed.

In a social media post confirming the delay, The Village Chippy said: “Due to circumstances out with our control in the delay of materials essential to opening, sadly, we won’t be open until next week.

“We thank you for your patience at this time & look forward to welcoming you all soon.”
