Crisp sandwich shop closes down

The country's first 'crisp cafe' is to close down. Mr Crisp opened in Keighley back in July selling all varieties of the snack served in bread, baguettes and even rolls. It was the brainchild of 42-year-old Mark Pearson who was inspired by a similar shop in Belfast. He has now released a statement online saying he is having to sell the shop due to ill health. Prospective buyers are invited to contact him.
