Independent interiors business issues heart felt closing statement

Independent interiors, soft furnishings and café business, BOS Interiors and Coffee, Cake & Curtains, has closed.

Situated on Victoria Street in Burnham-On-Sea town centre, the business said it has been unable to recover following the pandemic.

Owner Julia Stradling confirmed the closure on 9 September but promised that outstanding orders would be fulfilled.

A statement said: “I write this message with a heavy heart. The last decade has seen the soft furnishing industry become increasingly competitive, with online retailers selling at low prices impossible for me, a small business, to match.

“In 2019 I decided to diversify and converted half of the factory into a café. Coffee, Cake & Curtains was popular and well received by the community, unfortunately, the pandemic hit hard and the business has not been able to recover.

“To my employees, past and present, thank you for your contributions and support over the last three decades. There would not have been a shop without you.

“To my customers, thank you for visiting my little shop at the other end of town, whether you purchased some curtains or a cup of tea, I appreciate your business and will miss you all (and your four-legged friends).

“All blind & curtain orders will be fulfilled and we will be in touch when they are complete.”
