A new deli has opened in East Lancashire with customers queuing out of the door to see it on opening day.

The Deli at Twisted Interiors, on Preston Old Road in Feniscowles, opened on Thursday (31 March), serving produce from local businesses as well as homemade treats.

The Deli is inside the already existing interiors and gift shop, Twisted Interiors, which opened shortly before the pandemic hit.

Other popular items for sale include their loaded croissants which come in a variety of flavours, including: raspberry ripple, Malteser Bunny, Kinder Bueno and Lotus Biscoff.

After you eat, you can peruse the high-end interiors and gifts for sale in the shop.

Owner, Claire Twist, said: “When I first opened Twisted Interiors two years ago, my vision was to create something for the local people and community... the deli has evolved from this."

Claire, from Feniscowles, said she wanted to merge a deli with her gift shop after hearing some customer feedback.

Claire, from Feniscowles, said: “I have always been interested in food and always been a foodie.

“My customers were also commenting that it would be nice to have cake and a bite to eat while they shop... so I decided to go down the route of opening a deli in a retail shop.”

Since announcing the deli shop opening earlier in March, Claire said she has received an “excellent” response from customers.

She said: “The response has been absolutely fantastic.

“Feniscowles is slowly growing and evolving. There are new businesses and houses being introduced in the area.

"It appeared that this type of shop is what is wanted and needed in the area.

"Business owners can nip in to pick up a bite to eat in their lunch break."

After opening on Thursday, the shop was flooded with customers and pictures emerged of people queuing out of the door.

Claire said: “When we opened the deli, the response was great – we sold out of everything within a couple of hours.

“I am looking forward to the future. I want to keep building the business and see where it goes.

“A massive thank you to anybody who helped us make these decisions and anyone who has supported the new venture so far.”
