End of an era as town centre shop to shut after 52 years

A wine merchant is shutting its town centre shop - after 52 years. Rodney Densem Wines has had a presence in Nantwich since 1972.

But the Pillory Street shop is now closing this summer.

In a social media message to customers, the shop stated: "Since our establishment in 1972, your unwavering support has been the heart and soul of our business. Together we have shared countless moments of joy, laughter and fine wine.

"As we prepare to close our doors in a couple of months or so, we do so with immense appreciation. Our exceptional manager Clare and her dedicated team have continued to uphold the quality service and expertise that defines Rodney Densem Wines. To each and every customer who has walked through our doors, thank you for being part of our story. Cheers to the memories, the camaraderie, and the legacy of Rodney Densem Wines."
