Sad­ness as jew­eller Sev­ens set to shut

Macclesfield Express - - GROSVENOR CENTRE ROW -

A JEW­ELLER’S and gift shop open for al­most 30 years will close next month.

Sev­ens will shut its doors in the middle of March when the cou­ple who own it re­tire.

The shop opened on Roe Street in 1986 be­fore Terry and Beatrice But­ler moved the busi­ness to Ch­ester­gate, where it has been for the last 14 years.

Mac­cles­field Cen­tral ward coun­cil­lor Bev­er­ley Doo­ley said: “It’s very, very sad a shop like Sev­ens is clos­ing.

“It’s yet an­other niche lit­tle shop shut­ting. The pub­lic want to see more small, in­de­pen­dent re­tail­ers but they have to un­der­stand they need the foot­fall.

Sev­ens co-owner Terry said: “We are ready to go but we will miss the shop.”
