The gift shop which offered a wide variety of unique cards, gifts and more has ceased trading from it’s Longbridge home.
Bentleys originated in Stourport in 1953 and was a much welcomed arrival to the newly developed town centre in 2016.
The store became popular amongst shoppers, Clare Mann gave the store 5 Stars last March on their Facebook page saying: “The shop is wonderful beautiful gift ideas and large selection of cards the staff are always friendly and welcoming”
The Development Director at St Modwen, Chris Newsome, said: “We can confirm that Bentley’s has been served with a notice to vacate its premises in Longbridge Town Centre.”
The popular Gift Shop, which can also be found at its City Centre location in the Great Western Arcade, has left some local residents disappointed with its closure – Gemma Cartwright said on B31 Voices Facebook: “Really missed Bentleys Shop today in Longbridge town was looking for that extra special gift.”
Bentleys haven’t officially provided us with a response, however a source has laid fault of a poor footfall for its closure which leaves Longbridge with a vacant premise.
