Emmerdale Village Store & Post Office (formerly known as Beckindale shop and the village store) was the main shop in the village until 2011, when it suffered a fire, killing Terry Woods and Viv Hope.

The building is now occupied by Café Main Street.


1914-1989: Beckindale yearsEdit

The shop was run by Reg Webster alongside his wife Gladys in the 1910s, and eventually elderly Amy Postlethwaite ran the shop until 1973 when she retired to Devon. Henry Wilks bought the shop but let Alison Gibbons run it. In 1974, Norah Norris took over until February 1975 when Lena Dawkins took over. In June 1988, Mrs Robson was running the shop when there was a robbery. Nick Bates foiled the robbery and Mrs Robson fled to safety. When no one was looking, Nick took some of the money left behind by the robbers.

1993-2000: Windsor familyEdit

In August 1993, Londoner Vic Windsor took over the shop. He was accompanied by his wife Viv Windsor, and their 3 children Scott Windsor, Kelly Windsor and Donna Windsor. 4 months later, a plane crashed on the village and Luke McAllister broke into the shop to get all the medical supplies. Vic understood, and Luke had left a note to explain, and did an inventory of stuff he took. Vic and his family bought their city ways to Beckindale and that did annoy some villagers. They ran the shop successfully. In December 1998, Vic was killed by Billy Hopwood when he broke into the shop.

2000-2011: Windsor-Hope-WalkerEdit
