Post Office Closing – updated

Post Office Closes
McColl’s Newsagent and Post Office at Gainsborough Green will be closing in early October. A lot of people will be upset by this closure as it leaves South Abingdon without a post office, and the closest alternative is in town.

The notice in the window blames staff shortages for having to close at 5pm rather than later.

P.S. Didn’t get my facts right first time round so have updated this post.

Eben Lark have landed in a new Abingdon town centre location selling vintage goods for the home and garden.

They are now at the Roysse Room, once a month, and have a lot more space than when they were at their previous location, St Ethelwold’s House.

Before that Eben Lark were in at least two different shops in the town centre. But the peripatetic, pop up style, could suit them better.

There were a lot of people looking round the Roysse Room this morning. Bury Street also looked very busy.

Abingdon had an antique shop

Art and Stuff
Art & Stuff have mostly closed down although they do still have a notice saying they could be open by appointment. It has been good to have an Abingdon Antique shop where people were welcome to browse and occasionally buy stuff for almost six years.

Both Gromit the dog, and Gromit’s owner, will be doing Vintage and Antique fairs, but are retired from the 9-5 shop-keeping life. Best wishes to them both and thanks for all the art and stuff.

New Tea Room

New Tea Room
A new Tea Room is to open in East St Helen Street. The signs are up and there are notices in the window saying there looking for part time staff who can do Saturdays. The Tea Room facebook page has the same details.

Belinda’s Jewellery Box was in this premises before moving to West St Helen Street. Rosie’s Tea Room in West St Helen Street closed a few months ago and will, I believe, soon become a French Bistro.

Over the road William Hill have closed. William Hill announced a month ago that they would be closing around 700 of their licensed betting shops after the government changed the maximum stake on betting machines from £100 to £2.
