Just had an email from them saying they took the decision to shut
Thank you and goodbye
We’re sorry to say that our little business has reached the end of the road, and just wanted to write a quick note to explain why and to say thank you.
You will have seen that for a couple of months now the shop has been down. We made a decision in August that we would bring the business to an end. It was clear that it either needed about £20k ploughed into it to make it fully functioning and viable, or it needed to close. Ultimately, with economic uncertainty looming [as an aside: General Election now] it was the better choice to wrap it up and return to gainful employment elsewhere. Calvin took wages for two weeks in the whole run, and every other penny went on stock, rent, and Shopify.
