Furniture businesses return to Abingdon Town Centre

Furniture businesses
There is a new bed and mattress shop that has opened in the ex Superdrug store next to poundland. They opened a few days ago and there is an opening sale on at the moment. I don’t know a lot more but the lady running it told me they had taken out a lease for a couple of years and will extend that if it works well here.

In the shop that was Simon’s News in East St Helen Street a new shop will be opening soon. Work has been going on in there behind the whitened shop windows, and now a sign is showing in the door. It will sell restored furniture and homeware accessories. More news in the weeks to come.

Bonjour! (Finally) opening soon!

Andy sent me this picture of a notice that is outside the former Rosie’s Tea Room.

As so often happens the work needed to get a place ready for opening has taken longer than expected.

Pedal Power at 40 years and 2 months

Pedal Power at 40
Pedal Power have a window painting that celebrates 40 years as a cycle and cycle repair shop. The painting has been up since November and so the business is probably 40 years and 2 months by now.

Pedal Power is a family business and the grand children of the founder work there. They are always helpful.

This picture shows the sun setting over the Vineyard in Abingdon where you can find Pedal Power and Mr Lee (hairdressing) next door. Mr Lee has been there nearly as long as the cycle shop.

Those pictures were taken last week. On the same day Tony sent me a picture of the full moon somewhere in Abingdon. Thankyou to him.

Nursery Shop to close

Nursery Shop to close
The Nursery Shop opened as an Independent Shop selling quality toys and clothes in Abingdon in 1998. At that time the owner had a baby of her own. She has always sold gifts, toys and clothing that she would like for her own children.

The shop moved to the Market Place in October 2018, and is now to close.

The world will be a duller place without The Nursery Shop.
