Standing empty: Gifts and More shut shop on Saturday
Today is the last day of trading for Mendip Monsters, which was a favourite with shoppers who enjoyed looking at exotic pets, such as snakes, lizards and other reptiles.
The shop in Holly Court, is just across from the discount store Gifts & More which shut shop on Saturday and is next door to Go Potty which has remained empty since closing in the summer.
“It’s such a shame,” said the owner of Bluebells Florist, “It will feel quite lonely now.”
Late last year Holly Court welcomed The Equestrian Shop to its downstairs level and trade continues to thrive at ladies fashion shop Level One, and at Bluebells and Blackmon Estate Agents.
However, the loss of these three shops leaves Holly Court looking rather bleak.
So what three businesses would you like to see move into Holly Court? Do you know of any other businesses closing or perhaps starting up? Please let us know.
