OWNERS of an Oswestry gift shop that gave local creators the chance to sell homemade goods say they will be closing at the end of the year.

Under One Roof, in Beatrice Street, will close its doors for the final time on Christmas Eve, after a year of business, with co-founders Sarah Wright and Josh Rogers moving back to Yorkshire for family reasons.

In a Facebook post, the pair explained that they wanted to go out on a high with good sales throughout the Christmas period.

They said: "We're very sad to say goodbye, but we also don't want our departure to be all doom and gloom.

"Let's celebrate an amazing few years together by supporting our local artists and stocking up on all the handmade goodies for Christmas."


Under One Roof, which was praised for its concept by then Oswestry mayor, Councillor Duncan Kerr when he opened it, has confirmed it will remain open right up until Christmas, with its last day of trading on Christmas Eve, December 24.

They also said that they will be open on Mondays and Tuesdays every week until closing.
