Another chapter closes in the 200 year long story of the UK’s Christian bookshops as Ray & Vera Meacham of the Nutshell Bookshop, Stowmarket, prepare to retire with a two-week long closing down sale commencing today. In a letter sent out to customers last week, they wrote:
Welcome to this shop news April 2010 edition.
We would like to thank you for your custom over the past ten years. It is now time for me to retire and close the shop.
With this in mind we are having a retirement sale – all stock is to be reduced to 1/2 price (unless otherwise marked). The sale will commence on 27th April for two weeks.
If all goes to plan the shop will close on 8th May 2010.
It goes without saying ‘first come first served’.
Once again thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you next week.
Ray & Vera Meacham
