Independent prepares for end of month closure

Independent furniture retailer The Little Grey Bird has confirmed plans to close for good.

The business, which is based in Hadleigh and owned by Kelly Campbell-Staines and husband Keith Staines, said that trade was hit by Brexit and Covid-19 lockdown.

The store will officially close on 30th January 2021.

In a statement over social media, the business said: “We have come to this decision over the last week, as times have changed and we recognise that the shopping habits and needs of our customers have also changed.

“We want to say thank you for the last six years of support, of friendship and all the lovely memories made.

“In the meantime, I’m sure you are wondering, but we are unaware at this time who or what will be taking over our lovely shop, but whatever it is, we wish the future business all the very best of success.”
