Scott Longstaff, managing director at Rohan, said: “We are thrilled to open a brand new store in Truro and to be able to re-establish our relationship with the town.”

Store manager. Kerry Daniels, added: “We’re looking forward to providing the local community with our team’s expertise here in Truro. We’re currently a team of eight members of staff and the store will continue to follow the high standard of service set by Rohan when offering great quality products.”
