Customers of the shop on the High Street are expressing their sympathy on a posting on the business's facebook page which reads:
"It is with regret we are having a Total Stock Clearance of all gifts, jewellery & kitchenware in our High St shop due to closure!!!! Grab a bargain from Sat until the end of the month. Shiela Fleet, Ness, Stellar gifts included - get your Mothers Day gifts cheap while you can"
Undoubtedly the closure of the iconic premises which have been a feature of the High Street for a considerable number of years will be a heavy blow to the town centre. The Tradeway facebook page is here.
