Lower part of tiling to right side wall now missing. Side walls also retain original meathooks and left side retains two marble shelves. On the floor is black and white mosaic flooring decorated with large thistles and with Greek key design border. At the back of the shop is the accounts kiosk set into the rear wall and lined with highly glazed dark brown tiles. Framing the payment counter are glazed framed panels with the David Greig entwined initials and panels of bevelled mirror and original panelled mahogany doors, the left side one leading to cold store. Until recently the left side of the shop retained the whole length of the original marble counter top with a beautifully decorated facing panel of glazed brown and cream tiling but at the time of inspection only about one third of this remained intact.
