Popular pet shop closes after 25 years
A pet shop in Hythe, Kent, has closed its doors for the final time after 25 years of trading.
Lamp-Post Pet Supplies in Hythe High Street, which was run by Marion Farrell, first opened in 1989 and has provided food and accessories for nearly three decades.
In a note in her shop window, she wrote: “It’s the end of an era – the doors have closed for the last time. Thank you so much to all my loyal customers and friends for your support and love over the last 25 years.
“Without you and the staff, I could not have carried on. Thank you also for all the gifts and cards and, more importantly, the good wishes you have given me over the last few days."
