Vyes "The Kentish Grocer"
« Reply #1 on: August 02, 2011, 17:39:31 »
Does anyone know what happened to Vyes? They had a shop in Whitstable near the railway bridge and also in Sittingbourne High Street, approximately opposite Central Avenue. I think there were branches all over Kent that have completely disappeared. If I remember correctly, if you were`somebody` in Sittingbourne you shopped at Hulburds and Vyes came next. For the rest of us it was the Co-op, Liptons, Maypole, David Griegs, etc. A few years ago "Vyes the Kentish Grocer" was signwritten on the side of a shop near the railway bridge (I think it`s Oxford Street) Whitstable but it appears to have been overpainted now.
