Homeware firm shifts focus to online

Independent home furnishings and accessories business Teasel & Tweed has confirmed plans to close its shop and solely focus online.

The store will officially close on 29 September 2019 with owners citing the ‘high street crisis’ and ‘decline in footfall’ as the main reasons behind the move.

The company added that it will focus online with the launch of its own designs following the closure of its Aberdeen store, which is situated on Rosemount Viaduct.

In a brief announced through social media, the business said: “We are moving to the next chapter of our story. We are going online with our own designs and taking many of our wonderful stockists too from all over Scotland!

“Our popular courses will still be held, but we will be in various locations around the North East! Colourful new venues to be announced. Keep up to date with the exciting changes, events, pop up shops, stockists and developments on FB, Instagram, Twitter and of course our new look website coming soon.”
