We had the chance to ask Mr. Fry what he'd love to buy at our store. He can't live without HP Sauce; Jaffa cakes; Liquorice Allsorts; Aero Bars, Curly-Wurlys and a good brew of Yorkshire Tea! We're just a few blocks away from his concert venue this Saturday, so come visit the most British spot in the Metroplex. We're open 7 days a week so it's easy as...ABC!
