A well-known charity shop in Nuneaton has been forced to close its doors.
Bosses at the PDSA have said that after ‘exploring every avenue’ they have taken the decision close the store in Stratford Street.
It has been stressed that, despite the closure of the town centre store, the PDSA vets in the area remain open.
The store is the latest charity shop forced to close, after the Cancer Research store, formerly based next door, also shut its doors.
Lloyd Hughes, PDSA’s Head of Retail, said: “After exploring every avenue and careful consideration, sadly our Nuneaton shop has closed its doors for the final time.
“Like many retailers, we have been facing extremely tough trading conditions on high streets up and down the country, and we took the difficult decision not to renew our lease.
“On behalf of PDSA I would like to thank the staff, volunteers and customers for their support and hope they will continue to assist our work of treating sick and injured pets in the future. Our shops in Cheylesmore and Radford remain open.
“Although our shop in Nuneaton has now closed, this does not affect our veterinary clients in the area, who can still access PDSA’s charitable treatment for their pets as usual.”
PDSA provides free and low cost veterinary treatment to sick and injured pets belonging to people in need.
The charity has seen its income fall by around £3 million per month since the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.
