The owner of a long-standing dog training outlet in Bedminster, Bristol, has revealed the site is likely to close at the end of April.
Owner Roz Pooley, from The Mutty Professor, made the announcement to her Facebook followers citing an increase in costs and the introduction of Bristol’s Clean Air Zone as key reasons behind the decision.
Pooley said: “Businesses like my lovely, little shop have ever-increasing over heads, from extorionate energy bills, to higher wages. Now stock costs continue to increase, as the brands we sell also do their best to stay afloat. While our takings have not dropped that much, the overheads are waaaay higher, which is little different to sales dropping.
Pooley told Bristol World that at least four parties have come forward offering to potentially take over the lease to avoid closure.
