The shopping scene in Honiton’s New Street has been dealt a fresh blow after a business announced it will close tomorrow (Friday).
The Magpies Nest, which sells antiques, costume jewellery and hand-painted furniture, will officially close its doors for good.
The closure adds to the list of already-shut businesses in Honiton in the last eight months.
In November 2017, Honiton’s last remaining cleaners - Courtesy Cleaners, closed down.
Two months later, confectioners The Chocolate Box closed.
