Talk on The News’ Face­book page yes­ter­day turned to the an­nounce­ment of Thomas Jewellers clos­ing stores. Gale Hat­ton: Oh no. The staff told me a cou­ple of months ago they were hav­ing a mas­sive sale to get rid of stock, then re­fur­bish­ing the store with a more mod­ern look. Jean McPher­son: It’s so sad to now be busy be­cause of clos­ing down. It was a lovely busy clean shop­ping area when I lived here. Liss Thomp­son: Hard to keep you busi­nesses open if peo­ple aren’t vis­it­ing and sup­port­ing the CBD as they should. An­other icon clos­ing in Shep­par­ton, a real shame. Au­drey Bowles: That’s so sad. Have shopped there over many many years and al­ways loved it. Jenny Dean: Sad to see such a lovely store close, hubby bought my en­gage­ment ring there in 1989. Kar­lene Kaur: Hope there’s some good sales com­ing up. Mark Riches: Never ever have I seen a town with so many busi­nesses start up and then shut down. Elle Curtis: An­other one bites the dust. Are there any shops that aren’t the gi­ant re­tail chain stores left in Shepp? Sue Good­ing: That’s sad. A busi­ness that’s been around for­ever now go­ing and more staff los­ing their jobs. Craig-Lee Smith: Bought my Seiko watch there in 1987, I’ve still got it.
