F & C Willey in Cross Street, Woodhouse, is still open for business.

F & C Willey, based in Cross Street, Woodhouse, operates from a property sold at auction for £234,000 last week.

The building was marketed by auction house Mark Jenkinson and Son as a 'substantial high yielding investment property' and also contains a licensed house of multiple occupancy, a separate four-person bedsit and additional store areas.

The sale includes the lease of the butcher's shop, which is staying open. But the news of the deal has caused confusion among some of its loyal customers.
