GRAND REOPENING FOR STATIONER
A CHESHAM shop which has been closed on and off for the last six months held a grand re-opening after a final 10 day refit.
JPS Stationers, on Market Square, opened its doors to the public on Saturday (July 2) and the ribbon was cut by mayor of Chesham Noel Brown and Mimi Harker, chair of Chiltern District Council.
The shop had been forced to close in September 2015 but the anticipated five week closure turned into a 12 week one.
The shop reopened in December but remained unfinished until Saturday’s event, which marked the final completion for Ray Williams and his team.
Mrs Harker said JPS is an important part of her life providing the pens and labels to run her own business. “Many towns in the Chilterns have a heart but Chesham has the biggest and JPS is at the heart of that,” she added.
Mr Brown said: “How proud we should be, as many other towns are envious of Chesham with its strong and supportive community.”
Mr Williams thanked all who had helped during the closures, including family and friends and the customers.
