A long-established town centre business in Clitheroe is set to close.

Linda Dixon (58), who has run Tots to Teens on Castle Street for the past 17 years, said the lack of footfall in the town had forced her to take the difficult decision to close.

The mother-of-four said: “Over the past few years we’ve seen a real decline in custom.”

Linda said she had no plans to retire and that when the business closes she will be looking for work, as will her two part-time members of staff.

An up-to-half-price sale is currently being held at the shop on a wide range of stock, including schoolwear, toys, Christening wear, gifts and much more.

Linda, who has lived in Clitheroe since she was aged 11, said her business had enjoyed a loyal customer base over the years, with many customers who had been brought in by their parents for clothes later shopping there for their own children.
