Have your say

THE OWNER of a sweet shop in Bury St Edmunds has hit back at rumours that the shop is about to close.

Auntie Pam’s Sweet Shop, in The Traverse, was established six years ago.

Sheila Barnard, who took over the business with her family three years ago, said she had been hearing rumours since January that she was about to close the shop and that these rumours have intensified over the summer.

She is trying to reassure customers that she has no intention of closing.“ We’re getting customers that are getting a bit upset to hear that we’re closing and we’re trying to reassure people that we’re not,” she said.
