This October will mark the end of an era for the popular Lily May ladies’ boutique in Heywood.

After seven years of successful business, Lily May will close its doors on 22nd October when their lease will expire.

Co-owners and best friends Wendy Moore and Carolyn ‘Caz’ Beaumont said: "It is with the deepest sadness that we will be ceasing to trade this October.

"We have thrived here in Heywood, but the lease has expired, and we have been unable to secure another local premises to rent. Frankie at the make-up studio wants to expand her business and take over the whole building going forward.

"It is a little early for both of us to call it a day. Despite Covid and the economic climate, we have been extremely busy and successful. Wendy will have more time with her family and Caz will no doubt find a new exciting chapter in life.

"We want to say a huge thank you to all our lovely customers; they have become friends and Lily May has been a hub of happiness, love and care.

"We have thoroughly enjoyed raising money for charities and well deserved causes through our fashion shows, daft videos, tv appearances and enjoyed meeting some extremely wonderful people in the fashion trade and our neighbouring local businesses. Please continue to support your local business; it means so much to the town of Heywood. 

"What a wonderful chapter in our lives the shop has been, we will be having sales from the end of July onwards and very much want to say goodbye personally.

"We hope to see you all soon and thank you for all your support and custom, we will miss you."
