A town centre department store has once again closed its doors after two years of trading. Shoppers have expressed their sadness at the closure of Rebos in Strait Bargate, Boston, which also had a café, restaurant and play area for children.
Rebos originally shut on April 1 this year, before a grand reopening just three weeks later. Owner, Serkan Arslan, was optimistic the store would succeed following the reopening, but it was not meant to be.
The statement reads: “It is with deep sadness that Rebos Boston Limited has ceased trading. The store has now closed and this includes the café, restaurant, customer toilets and Rebosplay, at this time.
“Fixtures and fittings are being sold off and anyone interested should email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange appointment to buy or collect. We would like to thank all customers for their support over the last two years.”
Many have described the closure as a “big loss” for the town. One Facebook user said: “Thank you for trying against a backdrop of such negativity around the world.”
Another wrote: “This is such a sad loss to the town no matter how you try to analyse the closure”. Another Facebook user added: “This will be a big loss for Boston”.
