Failed promises prompt independent business to close store

Independent furniture and homewares business Steffi Jane Designs has confirmed it will close its store to focus online.

The business, which is situated in Haven Mill on Garth Lane, Grimsby, said that it will not be renewing its lease at the premises and will close the shop at the end of November.

In a statement, store owner Steph LeGallienne, said: “The economic pressures that are affecting many small businesses are finally taking their toll.

“Footfall is drastically reduced and promised redevelopment in the local area has come to nothing making having business premises in the area no longer a viable option.

“I have loved having my shop for almost six years and meeting so many lovely customers. Thank you so much to everyone for their support and custom.”

The business will continue to trade online as well as at local fairs.
