A mother-and-daughter team are looking forward to opening their new shop on Musselburgh High Street.

Annette Archibald and her daughter Kerry Rathband, who worked in the former Wilson’s Fresh Farm Produce on High Street, are set to reopen the premises as Fruit Bakes in their first business venture together.

Both from Musselburgh and former pupils of Musselburgh Grammar School, they are opening the shop as a partnership and will work full-time, helped by one part-time member of staff, Louise Lacey, from Musselburgh, who also worked part-time in Wilson’s.

Wilson’s closed after 17 years in business at the end of August.

Annette worked there since it opened and Kerry worked at Wilson’s for 15 years before leaving three years ago.

Annette said: “After both working in the shop for so long, we feel that it is a big part of the community and, with some changes to the shop, we hope this will be a benefit to the High Street.”

The premises are currently undergoing refurbishment.

Annette and Kerry hope to be open in the next few weeks selling fruit, vegetables, home baking, fresh bread, fish, pies and local produce.

“We look forward to seeing all our customers old and new,” said Annette.
