An Inverness bakery is to shut up shop from today as a result of changing consumer habits.

Harry Gow bosses have confirmed their branch in Tomnahurich Street will close its doors for the final time this evening due to the shop no longer “pulling its weight” for the family-run business.

When approached by the Press and Journal, director Fraser Gow said the company had made the “difficult decision” to close the shop due to the “ever-changing environment”.

He said: “In the interest of efficiency we constantly review location performance with a view to rationalise and unfortunately in this particular location, the shop is no longer pulling its weight. We made the difficult decision to shut up shop.

“Consumers have their shopping behaviour and that changes and we have found that in our bakery shops in Fairways, Kessock and Elgin for example, the trade is booming and it’s down to convenience of where it is.”

Mr Gow also confirmed the shop’s staff will keep their jobs, relocating to other branches in the region.

He added: “We are relocating all our staff concerning that location and no way will anyone be losing their job.”

The announcement comes after the property was put up for sale earlier this year for £80,000.
