Thanks to the support of the Green Man Management Group and their Centre Manager Mark Healey, the Sunshine Superstore on the Strawberry Vale estate is now an Oyster card outlet.
Murat Tunc, owner of the store approached the GMMG committee last year for support when he was originally turned down by Oyster. Mark wrote to Oyster in September 2010 expressing the GMMG committee’s support for the store to become an Oyster card outlet stating that it would be “a great benefit to the local community”.
Olajide Akinbote, a local resident said “Having Oyster available in the estate shop will make a big difference for the residents, especially those living on a budget who often have to top up their cards. Now we can top up on route to the bus stop rather than having to go much further out of our way. I am really pleased to see this happen”.
