Pet's Paradise - but not children's

CD Department Closing Down SALE.

Recently closed down Toy Shop.

Traditional pet shop .... expanding.

Another even larger pet shop is on its way at Fairacres, out of town, called Pet City or Pet Supermarket or Pet Paradise or something like that.

I had not spotted the toy shop closing down - you don't see many independany toy shops around these days.
As for Dawsons - like many CD sales outlets, can no longer compete with downloads.

I see from the Oxford Times today that Dawsons is closing down completely - Abingdon will be turning into a ghost town!

Im not surprised to hear about another independant toy shop closing. As a toy retailer we now concentrate on trading online as the competition from the larger stores and even supermarkets make it hard to compete.

We have had to concentrate on a niche of wooden toys to differentite ourselfs.

We would of course be happy to serve the good folk of Abingdon with quality toys should they need them.
