Another high street store on the Isle of Wight has announced its closure.

Bella Lucca, on Ryde High Street, is shutting up shop for good.

The women’s clothing store, which is based two doors down from Iceland, has been run by husband and wife Jane and Dino Camoccio for the past two and a half years.

Thanking customers for their support over the years, Dino told the Isle of Wight County Press that footfall has fallen since Christmas, and it has been a “bit of a struggle”.

He said: “Thank you very much for your support. It has been appreciated and we are disappointed that we are leaving you.

“Let’s hope the high street survives for their sake”.

A closing down sale has launched and Dino is urging customers to pop in for a bargain.

As for the future, Jane is expected to embark on a new challenge working at HOLT – a new training centre for people with learning disabilities.

Bella Lucca closes for the final time on March 31.
