It’s with much sadness that I’m announcing The Blue Room will be closing its doors for the last time on Saturday 22nd December. We will continue trading as normal until then and all workshops will go ahead as scheduled. I hope you will continue to support us, taking this last opportunity to buy from our local artists and makers. I’d like to thank all our loyal customers for their support over the last 5½ years.
Quite simply, The Blue Room is yet another victim of the decline in ‘bricks and mortar’ retail activity. We are not being charged an exorbitant rent. Our landlords have bent over backwards to help, including our first 3 years rent free! We don’t pay business rates because the rateable value is below the threshold. We are simply unable to generate adequate turnover with the low footfall in Nailsea and changing purchasing habits affecting all retailers.
This has been a very difficult decision, I’ve poured my heart and soul into trying to build a sustainable business that serves its local community. Sadly, I’ve had to accept it just isn’t working and Christmas is the time to draw it to a close. Until then, it’s business as usual.
Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 4pm.
Closed Sunday, Monday, public holidays, and between Christmas and New Year.
Sometimes we alter our hours due to staff holidays. If you are travelling some distance, please check our Facebook page for any changes.
