shops close down in Burnham-On-Sea High Street
shops in the centre of Burnham-On-Sea have pulled down their shutters
for the final time this month.
Clothing and Eve in the High Street have both closed after struggling
during the difficult economic climate.
of Trade Chairman Rhonda Mills told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It's
a great shame to see any business go. On the whole, though, Burnham
High Street has fortunately been fairly resilient during the recession."
"Local people who have not visited the town recently might
like to come to Burnham this Saturday and look at the range of
shops on offer. Most of the shops are independent and offer a
wide range to the discerning shopper, from items available elsewhere
to the unique."
"Why not explore the High Street, the side streets between
Oxford Street and The Esplanade, right down to Victoria Street.
Then, after a bite to eat, join us in Victoria Street for the
Christmas lights switch-on from 3-5pm where we will be celebrating
the talents of our young people."
