Shock closure of newsagent
2:49pm Friday 4th October 2013 in Romsey
ROMSEY’S only independent newsagent has closed suddenly.
Shocked customers turned up to buy their papers and magazines at Latimer News on Friday to find a notice saying that the business run by Agnes Bowman had closed.
In a statement Mrs Bowman who ran the business for 12 years said: “It is with great sadness that I have taken the decision to close Latimer News. With the latest increase in rent, rates and the drop in footfall it was made impossible to carry on trading.”
“I feel desperately sad for my loyal staff who have been by my side giving me unwavering support.
I thank all my loyal customers who I have got to know well over the past 12 years, I will miss you all very much,” said Mrs Bowman.
Copies of the Romsey Advertiser that should have been in Latimers today will be split between the other town centre shops tomorrow (Saturday) morning so readers can still get their aper.
