    Eggsellent prices at Peeps! In 1992 Giroscope helped a local workers-cooperative; The People’s Trading Company set up a permanent base for their shop by purchasing a property at 73 Wellsted Street that became known as ‘Peeps’. At a time when Wellsted Street was suffering from severe neglect and abandonment it was felt that a lasting local shop was vital to the rejuvenation project Giroscope pledged itself to in 1986. Since 1998 another local workers-coop Bootleggers Ltd has run the shop with the manager and general good- egg Richard Simms known to people locally as ‘Shim’ providing a friendly and familiar face. The shop sells a wide range of high quality produce at affordable prices from fresh fruit and vegetables to alcoholic beverages and cleaning products, deals include free range eggs sourced locally from North Ferriby and sold for as little as 99p for half a dozen, it doesn't take an egghead to work out that that’s a real bargain eggschange! In an area marred by uncertainty regarding proposed demolition Peeps has been a constant in local resident’s lives for over twenty years now. Needless to say: we at Giroscope are eggstatic to see it still flourishing and will continue to egg them on, that’ll be all yolks!
