Two jobs will be lost with the closure of one of Scarborough’s oldest furniture stores, the firm has announced.
Last week, the Scarborough News reported that the Rymer Schorah furniture store in North Marine Road is to cease trading after 43 years in the town.
The store will trade until all its stock is sold before ending a long and illustrious time in Scarborough.
In a statement, owners Will and Julie Hill said: “The reason for the closure is due to the retirement of the owners, who want to say thank you to all their customers and staff for their support over the years.
“Regrettably, two members of staff will be made redundant but we wish them every success in their future careers.
“An everything-must-go sale is currently being held at the shop.”
The store has been a fixture of Scarborough life since it opened in 1971.
People of a certain age will remember its famous radio jingle “Hey Rymer Schorah, furniture with style at a price to make you smile”.
It is not yet known what will become of the building, which will join other premises in the town which now stand empty.
They include those that were previously home to Comet and Jessops, which have not yet been re-let.
