A HEREFORDSHIRE business has closed its shop due to "high running costs".

Spindwyers in Leominster's Buttercross Arcade said thank you to customers in a sign posted in the shop window. 

According to the sign, the record shop closed for good on May 11.

While the shop has closed, the business will not, with the owner Andrew Dwyer continuing to trade at the antique market in the town's Broad Street.

The sign in the shop's window says: "This shop will close for good on Saturday, May 11. This is due to high running costs. Thank you to my customers. Spindwyers will continue however in a unit in the antique market."
