Hi everyone! Welcome to The Secret!

Hi everyone! Welcome to The Secret!

Oh Hi there! Lots of new followers around here so thought we’d  give you a proper hello and welcome to The Secret!


We are Cora & Roy (and of course our little boss Natalie) and we are the owners of The Secret Grocery.  We met each other 17 years ago and we got married 13 years ago. We love all things in Japan & Korea - food, toys, anime, drama and culture!


We decided to run our own business in 2020. After a few month of planning, we launched our online store in August 2020 and started our first market in Aylesbury in October 2020. During the time, we were looking for a retail space and lucky to find the Peking Inn.  After a year of paper work and renovation, we opened our very first shop in September 2021, a crazy time to open a shop, but we’d come so far and ploughed all of our savings into following our dream so there was no turning back! And i’m so glad we pressed on as the support has been amazing.


Whilst Roy frontline the business, I work behind the scenes on administration, marketing & web.  We work super duper hard to make The Secret the most fun grocery place on earth!   Life is an adventure and who would have ever thought that we would be opening a grocery in Aylesbury.


It was our dream and we always knew that we would achieve our goal.  It seemed impossible but believe us nothing is impossible.  If you are brave enough to break down the barriers in your head then you can achieve anything.  We really don’t know what the future holds for us but we are continuing to work hard to continue living our dream and making amazing customer services to you. Our mission is to bring the best of Japanese & Korean food and culture to Aylesbury.


These years have been hard on all of us. Soooo many little stores closing, up and down the country. Please support the little stores. You can support us by sharing this to your friends and family to let them know about our small business, it would help us a lot.  As well as in store we have a fab online shop and ship nationwide and packed with a smile.


Thanks for supporting a local family and business. It means the world to us that we can do what we love, where we love, with who we love. You’re all amazing!


We hope to see you soon!


With Love,

Cora & Roy
