Browns to close after 25 years

A FURNITURE shop in Henley is to cease trading after 25 years.

Browns of Henley, in Duke Street, is currently selling off its merchandise and will shut at the end of February.

Tim Barber, who bought the business three years ago, blamed a fall in sales partly caused by competition from the internet.

He said: “In the last five years the whole nature of retailing has changed and for whatever reason I have become aware not enough people in Henley are now prepared to spend the levels required to sustain a business like this.”

He said hoped to continue the Browns name and would look for alternative premises in the area.
