Mr Paramjit Singh Gahier has decided to shut shop and retire after 27 years at Campsie Road in the village.
Mr Gahier runs the shop with his son Suky and his brother Mohan.
In recognition of his long years of dedicated service, customer Tina Murray set up a special Go Fund me page to buy a gift for the much loved local businessman.
So far, generous villagers have collected more than £700.
People have been adding their comments to the page, including Neil and Jacqueline McCaig who said: “Happy retirement to you all, you so deserve it! Every good wish.”
Customer Laura-Jane Gelston told the Herald: “Mr Gahier has given so much to the local community, helped out vulnerable families and those in need (very privately).
“He will be sadly missed by everyone.”
