A VIGILANTE has hit out at an Irvine bookshop owner for the third time - again alleging that she owes him money.

The under-fire owner of Dilley Dalley Book Shop in Bank Street has had her shop emblazoned with yet another sign claiming she owes numerous small businesses money.

Jackie Dalley, who owns the store, first hit the headlines when someone claiming to be from Dreghorn business Auld Lang Signs took vigilante action and covered her shop with a sign saying: “The woman inside this shop doesn’t pay her bills. This sign will be removed when she does.”

Then, just three weeks later, another sign was plastered above the shop window saying “She’s still no paid”.

The sign was quickly ripped down, however the Times can reveal the vigilante, claiming to be Graham Crawley, who owns Auld Lang Signs in Dreghorn, has returned and this time listed people, he claims, are also owed money from Jackie Dalley.

The sign reads: “These are just some of the businesses who haven’t been paid by the woman in this shop. There may be many more. 1.Signmaker, 2. Children’s Author. 3. Landlord, 4. Removal Company, 5. Another Children’s Author, 6. Another Landlord, 7. Joiner, 8. lawyer, 9. Yet Another Landlord.

Following the Times article about Dilley Dalley Book Shop, two authors and a removals company came forward claiming that Jackie Dalley, owed them money for services rendered.

Since then the removals company say Mrs Dalley has settled their bill, however the Times understands others are still claiming to be owed money.

However Mrs Dalley says Mr Crawley did not carry out the work to her satisfaction, which is why she has refused to pay her bill.

She told the Times: “He is committing slander and criminal damage. Has anyone actually stopped to ask why have I not paid this man? If he had done what I asked him to then he would have been paid and then he charged me double what he quoted me.”
