Independent retailer to close Marlow store

Independent furniture retailer Sara Hughes has announced plans to close its store to focus online.

The retailer has been situated on West Street in Marlow for the last decade, but the owner, Sara Hughes, has decided to call time on the physical store.

“The lease on my shop is up soon and after 10 fabulous years on West Street I’ve decided to quit while I’m ahead and focus online,” Sara said.

The business has opted not to renew for another five years at the location due ‘naturally’ moving towards building its online presence.

“I want to focus on building the business’ website and on designing my own furniture,” Sara added. “It really is a natural step forward to focus more on selling designs online and to other shops.

“I’ll be closing at the end of May or early June. It depends how the stock clears.”

Sara Hughes is an independent retailer selling a collection of vintage and new furniture, accessories and other homeware, as well as hand-painted upcycled items.
