A CLOTHING shop off Taunton town centre is closing and will be operating exclusively online.

Dotty's Boutique, on Riverside Place, is currently holding a 'moving online sale' with plenty of reduced prices.

Rachael, who has run the women's clothing store for 14 years, said she made the "difficult decision" due to changing ways of shopping and the Covid-19 pandemic.

In an online post, she said: "I have had some great times. I have had some not so great times.

"Overall, it's been a fantastic experience."

She added: "I think the way we shop has changed and I think the way we would like to shop has changed.

"Obviously Covid has had a dramatic affect on the way we all conduct our lives."

Rachael paid tribute to her two members of staff and to the "great group of businesses and shops" in Riverside Place.

She said: "Thank you. You have been amazing over the last 14 years and throughout the last six months."

Dotty's Boutique is on Facebook, with regular updates, and the website is dottysboutique.co.uk where there is a message saying: "Get ready...something really cool is coming soon!"
