I saw the large posters in the window. ‘SALE Everything must go!’
The sad news is that after 31 years Prices Stationers are to close.
The posters had been put up on Saturday night. Some people had learned through Facebook. Monday morning at Prices was manic. By the time we saw the poster it had calmed down and there was time for tears.
Marian was there stocking up on sketch pads. My wife stocked up on acrylic paints. I got a large notebook for a diary.
It was one of the best of Abingdon shops. The people behind the counter were friends. Running a business like that does not allow much family time or holiday time. There are also problems of trying to make enough money from retail in 2021. And some of us at this time in life are getting older and need to slow down.
Thankyou to Prices for being there for 31 years.
