The Wee W store in Stornoway will close in the next few weeks unless a buyer is found it was announced today (Monday 17th June).
The Stornoway Store released this statement: “It is with the utmost regret that we announce that the Wee W store in Stornoway town centre will be closing down in the next few weeks unless a buyer is found to take it forward.
“Wee W was Ann McCallum’s vision she birthed the store and she built it up during one of the worst trading periods in our history. Ann was a constant inspiration with new ideas and displays, she was always exploring ways of bringing new products to Stornoway and was recently successful with the Wee Fudge Shop.
“Ann’s tragic and untimely death has left an unfillable void for Wee W and as a result the family and existing shareholders do not have the heart or desire to try and fill Ann’s shoes.”
It added: “We would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported Wee W and who will be impacted by this announcement.”
