One owner of a small business in Rhyl has said that others should give the town a chance by opening up their own ventures.
Speaking to the Daily Post, owner of furniture restoration store Forget Me Not Jayne Broster said she wouldn’t want to have her shop anywhere else.
“I have shown you can make a success in Rhyl, why can’t the town have nice shops like this? I am positive about the future of Rhyl and the future of the shop as well,” she asserted.
Ms Broster also said that she deliberately doesn’t sell her goods online, because she believes people need to come to her store and see the furniture to have a true appreciation for it.
She has been running her shop for three years, after falling in love with furniture restoration when she painted an old china cabinet for her beauty salon.
Just two days after undertaking that project, she had signed up for her premises in Rhyl, which she has now filled with old pieces of furniture that she believes have stories to tell.
Last year the Daily Post revealed that Rhyl high street is struggling to attract new businesses and stores, with figures from the Local Data Company revealing that Rhyl had a vacancy rate of 21.6 per cent in 2016.
At the time, chairman of the Rhyl Business Group John Bellis said that the organisation wanted to establish a Business Improvement District to work on improving the situation in the town centre.
