Christmas is but a faint memory. It was a busy Christmas season for us but it was wonderful to share the experience with all of our friends ! We saw many of our regulars and a few new faces. All had very nice things to say. Here are a few….

Rob G. wrote…Best British store in London. Loads of all the best food stuffs, particularly the sweets and jams. A good collection of memorabilia from around the British isles for gift ideas or for yourself, if your like me. The prices are reasonable and the staff are knowledgeable and helpful.

ATOB Summer Update

Our Summer Update:

First we would like to thank all of our loyal customers.  To date, we have given away thousands of dollars worth of food and gifts through our loyalty program.


The spring was definitely filled with Royal news, the arrival of the new baby, Louis, and the wedding of the year of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.  We know that many of you held special events to celebrate with the Royal couple.


And now we find ourselves in mid summer.  A couple of exciting things we would like to share with you.  We are looking for some part-time help (job details can be found at the bottom of this email).  If you know anyone who might qualify or if you, yourself, are looking for some work, please review the details.  Also, we will be introducing a weekly Facebook special in August.  If you’re not one of our many Facebook customers, why not join the group.


Again, thank you from our family to yours for your loyalty.  We hope you have a wonderful summer filled with fun memories spent with family and friends.
