Wine shop announces closure


The owners of a wine shop in Alderley Edge have announced it will be closing this summer.

Laithwaite's Wine opened it's 'northern flagship store' on South Street, in the premises perviously occupied by The Yard, in October 2017.

At the time it was the company's 14th store and their most northerly one but since then three of their other branches have closed.

A spokesperson for Laithwaite's Wine told "The shop will be closing on the 4th August. This was a down to a business decision in the current climate."

No surprise there - it was always the wrong location.

We have been a customer of Laithwaites for a long time and enjoyed visiting the Alderley Edge shop - parking outside as well. The staff were great, very friendly and knowledgeable - another hit for 'bricks and morter' businesses that can't compete with on-line trading
