New Thai shop launches in RotherhamPublished Wednesday, 17th February 2016
A new shop on High Street is bringing the taste of Thailand to Rotherham.
Owned and managed by husband and wife team Stephen and Pasuta Gough, Ahan Dee Thai and Oriental Foods is the only specialist shop in the borough to offer south east Asian groceries and produce.
The new retail store promises to stock everything from exotic fresh fruit and vegetables to ginger tea and even catfish!
In line with the aim of other local retailers to offer something different and provide a personal service that can’t be matched online, the team at Ahan Dee plan to use their wealth of knowledge and expertise to advise customers on the best ingredients needed to prepare authentic dishes.
Owner Pasuta said: "We are thrilled to be launching our new store in the award winning Rotherham town centre. This is a wonderful opportunity and we are delighted to be bringing a taste of the Orient to the High Street."
Martyn Benson, Rotherham Investment and Development Office (RiDO) Start-up Business Advisor, who assisted Ahan Dee, said: "We were pleased to support Stephen and Pasuta as part of the RiDO ‘Ready for Business’ start-up project and look forward to seeing the business grow."
Advisory Cabinet Member for Housing and the Local Economy, Cllr Denise Lelliott, added: "The Great British High Street judges specifically commented on our differentiated shopping offer so we are delighted to welcome a specialist business like Ahan Dee to the town centre and see our independent retailers go from strength to strength. We wish Ahan Dee every success in the future."
