Shoobox on Main Street, Bingley shuts its doors for good

Shoobox has been located on Main Street in Bingley for the past two decades and was taken on by Linda Cutter just under eight years ago.

The shop specialised in ladies products – selling footwear, handbags, clothing and accessories.

Linda cites a reduction in footfall and person reasons for why it shut for good this past weekend.

In a post on Shoobox’s Facebook page, she thanked all of her customers down the years and urged them to continue supporting local businesses.

It read: “What an emotional weekend.

“On Saturday, you called in, you supported, you hugged, you brought flowers and gifts, and you made our final “open day” very special.

“Sunday was a tad different as I emptied and cleared and put my dream in a very special memory box.

“However, as some very special people in my life have reminded me, not many people actually get to live their dreams, but I did, so thank you for helping me to do that.

“Talking of thank yous, I would like to thank you for supporting (the shop).”
