Worlds Smallest Tyreshop
With its earthen floor and old fashioned equipment, Morton's isn't KwikFit, but it is quite possibly the Smallest Tyre Shop in the World. Based in the lean to at the back of Morton s auto parts business , its a place where the job is done right first time. I'm not trying to imply that the larger automotive tyre and exhaust places are any worse, but I'm spent hours in those places, where you're just a number. Morton seems to know his customers by nothing more than their first names. The shop is a small microcosm, people came in to buy parts, have tyres changed or just to chat. The lady running the Cafe next door brought a mug of hot soup and left it on the counter asking me to tell Morton it was there, a short while after a man with an Irish lilt turned up trying to sell Morton some secondhand hand tyres. Morton was having none of it, explaining to the seller that he didn't know the history of his tyres and he wouldn't risk his customers safety. The Irishman left muttering something about trying ebay!
