The Saltcity Story
Owner Rich says:-
I started Saltcity back in 1990 as an 18 year old with a passion for surfing and to be honest I didn’t particularly want a “proper” job. Surfing was my life and I saw an opportunity to open a small shop, so I did. I borrowed some money from a family friend and off I went. It was a hobby but it meant I was involved with my passion 7 days a week. When the surf was good, I just shut the shop and went surfing!
I could do that then.
Now at 41 years old, nearly 23 years later, I have grown up (just a little!) but that passion and love still remains, even though I can’t surf as much and just shut the shop like I use too (that’s kids, wifey, mortgage and adulthood for you!!!)
But it’s all still in there. Still loving Saltcity and will continue to do so, hopefully, for the next 23 years.
Owner Rich says that he has lots of wonderful stories and some famous people in the shop over the years, but he wants to tell you these stories face to face. He’ll make you giggle and brighten up your day and even buy you a coffee while you are in store.
So pop down have a look around and have a bit of a chat over a brew.
