Nick's Fish Mongers in Newbridge to close

Nick’s Fish Mongers in Newbridge has announced it will close on Saturday, March 31 next.

The announcement was made recently on their facebook page. It cites the main factor behind the closure as poor traffic management in the town making it impossible for shoppers to get in or out easily. However it notes that they are in talks with "somewhere local in the town that wants to possibly stock our fish" adding they will update our customers on this early next week

It states that it is "with huge regret that we must announce the closing of our shop in Newbridge. 

"When we came to Newbridge almost eight years ago there was little or no other seafood available in the town on a daily basis but we changed that with a huge variety available every day. One of our biggest challenges in the last few years has been the sheer drop of people in the town, bad traffic management meant the town has become almost impossible to get in or out of and shoppers it seems have decided to stay as far out of the town as possible to do their shopping."

The statement also thanks their loyal customers who has shopped with them over the years.
