Town hit by shock pet shop closure


A pet shop in a North Norfolk town has shut down without warning, to the dismay of regular customers and its four staff members.


Claws and Paws, which has been trading in Station Road, Sheringham, for 20 years, was open for business as usual on September 18 but, when staff came to open up the shop the following morning, they found a notice on the door from a local lettings agents, saying the premises was now in possession of the landlords.


A report in the North Norfolk News said the owner of the shop had not been in touch with the two full-time and two part-time workers, leaving them worried about pay due to them  and their future employment prospects.


One long-standing staff member, who did not want to be named, told the newspaper: “All I can say is the shop was closed by the landlord and we didn’t know anything until we turned up to work on Wednesday morning to find we couldn’t get in as the locks were changed.”
