PIZZIT department store is closing its doors for good after its owners were forced to close the last of its stores.
The PIZZA department store in Bournemouth, England, is closing for good on January 1st.
Owner Tom Glynn said: “This is an unfortunate time for our staff.
We have taken our decision because we know there are too many people working hard to keep us running and we can no longer afford to continue as a business.”
Our team have worked very hard over the last two years to build our business into something special and we are very proud of the work we have done.
“The PizZA team is working hard in order to create the best possible brand for customers in the coming years.”
The PizzZA family run the shop, known for its fresh sandwiches, pasta salads and traditional pizzas.
The owner of PIZZZA, Tom Glynns, has decided to close his PIZZEKA store in order for his family to concentrate on a new venture.
He said:”We wanted to give our family some time to concentrate more on other things.
It has been a hard decision but I have had to make it to give my family some peace and quiet time.”
I am sure we will be back, I just don’t know how soon.
“The closing of PizzZIT is part of a wider restructuring in the UK department stores sector.
The UK’s biggest department store chain has been struggling to meet its customers’ growing demand for online shopping and it has also had to deal with a series of health scares.
The closures of PizZIT and PizzPizza are the latest in a string of department stores closures around the country.
In December, the owner of the famous PizzZone in Coventry, UK, was forced to shut down after the health problems of its staff.
The company has since closed another branch in Covent Garden and in March, PIZIZZA closed its Coventry branch after the death of its founder, Tony Glynn.
The Coventry store has been shut for a period of time but is still open to customers, Mr Glynne said.”
This is a great loss to Coventry and to the whole city.
We want to thank the staff who have worked so hard over many years to keep this shop going.
“We are very sorry for the inconvenience this will cause.”
