For anyone who didn't know, the shops will be sold at auction next year, and are very likely to be developed. It is a crime for this area, as they have been here since 1912 it is believed, and have been many different shops in their time, but we always knew we were likely to be the last one's here.
We have given these knackered buildings a lot of love and care, especially my mum, who has had her shop here for 25 years, whilst I've been on site for 9 years. i grew up here, coming down after school, whilst my mum worked and then spending all my time building up my own business.
It will be a horrible day when we close the doors for good, with many tears shed i'm sure.
I am intending on closing next week, and clearing out, but will be bringing back my usual bright, high quality, original stock to dress all three window displays until we have to officially leave at the end of January. I want to be remembered for how it was, not the mess it currently is!
Thank you so much for all your amazing support, through good and bad times, i will continue on here until i find another premise, but do keep them peeled for some amazing goodies coming soon.
