A curtain shop owned by a Sudbury town and Babergh district councillor David Holland is closing as he and his wife look to enjoy their semi-retirement, with Mr Holland intending to spend more time focusing on his council duties.
After nearly two decades, Curtain Craft is changing and will be moving to a consultancy and curtain making role in future, instead of high street retail, with the company’s King Street shop closing.
The business will be moving to a curtain making workroom and office accommodation within Sudbury, though the exact location has yet to be finalised.
Mr Holland said: “The shop building has been sold and all at Curtain Craft wish the new occupants every success when they start their new venture in Sudbury.”
The existing details for telephone and email contacts for Curtain Craft will remain the same.
For Pamela and David Holland, the proprietors of Curtain Craft, the closure sees their move to semi-retirement.
However, Mr Holland said one of his objectives was to free up time to dedicate to his work on Sudbury Town and Babergh District Council.
Mr Holland said: “We would like to thank the people of Sudbury and the surrounding villages for supporting the shop over many years and look forward to serving you as we move to providing a more consultative curtain design and making service.”
