Glossop Wholefoods in Derbyshire – which will appear in a new six-part ITV crime drama, After the Flood, due to be aired next year – has been put on the market.

Having taken over the store in 2017, modernizing extensively and enjoying ‘a wonderful adventure since’, owners Beth and Dan O’Toole recently put Glossop Wholefoods, located on the town square, up for sale. “We love the shop, and it wasn’t a decision we took lightly; however, we absolutely adore travelling and feel like we haven’t been able to travel as freely since taking it on,” explains Beth. “COVID taught us that life really can change in an instant and it made us re-evaluate what we want from our working lives. The shop is such a thriving and wonderful shop, it really is a ready-made business just waiting for the right person (or people) to come in and take over.

“We are so lucky here in Glossop to have such a supportive and loyal customer base, and we are grateful for our customers every day! Glossop is one of the very few towns left to have a thriving high street full of independent shops and cafés. And that is only possible because the people of Glossop support us independents! We also get lots of trade from neighbouring towns, as the high street really does offer a lot compared to other places.

“We hope that someone with a huge passion for health and wellbeing will take over the shop and keep the Glossop Wholefoods spirit alive. It’s such a key shop in the town, offering a safe and welcoming environment for local people to get advice and have access to wholesome foods, local produce, low-toxin toiletries and supplements and herbs.”

To fit in with their love of travel, Beth has retrained and started a business as an online gut health coach helping women heal digestive issues ‘so they can live their lives free of pain and embarrassment’ and enabling her to work from anywhere.

The store’s appearance in the TV show, which stars Sophie Rundle and Philip Glenister, was revealed on its Instagram page, alongside a photo of the temporarily renamed Waterside Wholefoods shopfront: “Anyone notice anything different? Don’t panic. We aren’t changing our name to Waterside Wholefoods…. The front of our shop is being used as part of the new ITV drama “After the Flood”. Exciting huh? The filming will take place for approximately 1 week…but we will be OPEN as normal throughout. So please shop with us as normal, and maybe enjoy a sneaky peek of some filming action while you do!”

Beth told NPN they didn’t find out about the filming until the TV crew came to measure up for new signage. “Apparently the landlord agreed for the whole building to be used,” says Beth. “Once we found out what was happening on the square, we were excited to be a part of it. The team measured up for new signage, as the fictitious town will be called Waterside. So, for now, we are Waterside Wholefoods. The signage looks great actually!

“The interior is the same as no filming is taking place inside … All of our usual (and I might add wonderful!) staff will be working here as normal. Sadly, we haven’t been asked to be in it. Shame! LOL!”
