In via Maestra the sales point is again active and managed by Margherita Frola for 35 years. A 32-year-old from Pavone Canavese takes care of it
“The little emporium”, as it was called, was opened on 4 October by the new owner Sonia Savastano, 32 years old.

To help me in the management – added the new owner of the store is my husband Stefano who, in the free hours from his work at the Lidl supermarket in Ivrea, gives me great support in the management of the business, which we took over after two months of coaching with the previous owner during which we were able to evaluate the various aspects of the business ».
Having avoided the risk of complete commercial desertification in Scarmagno, the municipal administration was also able to indirectly breathe a sigh of relief in the aftermath of the early termination of the lease and the closure of the restaurant bar housed in the premises of the Municipality adjacent to the new school and sports facilities in the Scarmagnese capital. Deputy Mayor Pia Gaudino confirmed that, once the previous lease contract was formally concluded, the municipal offices are already working on the preparation of the new tender for the assignment of the structure. –
