Closing Down Sale now started

After 10.5 good years, the Peacock and the Tortoise is closing.  Since the start of the pandemic we have been operating on a loss; this has made the business unsustainable.  Perth is losing another independent.

We have had a good time.

Our last trading day will be 27 November.  The sale has started; we are open Tuesday to Saturday 10 to 3.  There will be a lunch break – as it has been so busy in the first few days of the sale that we need a break!
