AN independent Wellington store is set to close its doors after ten years of trading.

Mad Dog, South Street, has announced to its customers it will be closing down at the end of April, when the lease comes to an end.

A spokesman said: “To all our loyal followers, after 10 years of trading we have decided to close the shop when our lease comes to an end in April.

“We feel it is the right time to move forward in our personal lives.

“We would like to take this opportunity to to thank everyone who has supported us over the years.”

In the run up to the closure, the store will feature a 75 per cent off sale.
