Customers in tears over pet shop closure

Pets Paradise in East Grinstead, Sussex, is closing down at the end of this month.

Jane Johnson, who has run the pet shop for the past 10 years, said she had had regular customers in tears over the announcement of the closure, but it was no longer financially viable to keep her business going.

Competition from Pets at Home and local discount shops, plus the arrival of budget home store Wilco’s next Spring means that trade has fallen off said Jane, who admitted she will be very sad to close her doors for the last time on 31 October.

“But as long as I can walk out of here with my head held high and my debts all paid off, I will be happy,” she said.
