Bryher Shop to close in September
Bryher Shop is to close in September, with owner Zoe Dan citing staffing, costs and personal reasons for the decision.
The store has provided an essential service to the island's residents, day trippers and holiday-makers since it re-opened in 2011. However, Zoe has now said that she is no longer able to keep it running.
The Duchy will shortly be advertising the premises to run as a shop and Post Office.
Zoe posted on the store's website: "We will be closing September 2018. The shop will run virtually as normal up until this point. After almost 8 years of running the shop I have had to make the very hard decision that I will no longer be able to carry on the shop. This is due to various factors such as staffing, costs and home life."
