Town shop closing
Published at 11:52, Friday, 19 October 2012
A MARYPORT dress agency, which sells clothes on behalf of other people for commission, will close its shop next week.
Prima Donna, on Curzon Street, only opened last December but the poor economic climate has forced owner Donna Hadden, 39, of Station Street, to close.
However, she will keep her business running from home.
She said: “I can’t keep it going. It’s the economic climate. I am a single mum now, and I had to cut my cloth accordingly.
“I have worked at it for 12 months and not taken a wage. I have loved every minute and I have a big passion for the shop, but at the end of the day I have to go as it’s not paying my wages.”
She will do dress alterations and bridal wear from her home. She will work by appointment only and can be contacted on 07759539470.
