Grantham music shop closes due to poor health and sales
A music shop which has been part of the local business scene for ten years has closed.
Simmonds Music, of Westgate, closed last week. Business owner Tom Simmonds was diagnosed with an incurableneuromuscular disease last year which has made it impossible for him to continue. He also says trade has been very poor in the last year.
Referring to his health, Mr Simmonds told the Journal: “It has meant that just performing day to day tasks was much too difficult for me and that, coupled with a massive decline in sales, meant the only option was to shut the doors and call it a day which is very unfortunate.”
