Doors shut on shop
Tuesday, 16th May, 2017
When Craig Lawrence closes the doors of his Oxide Street newsagency at one o’clock this Sunday, it will be for the last time.
Craig and Sue took over the newsagency 25 years ago, even though many still call it Bottoms’ as it was formerly known.
Craig said lower turnover and higher costs finally “brought him to submission”, and he wasn’t looking forward to another winter of getting up at 4.20am every day.
