The note says: "After many months of deliberating I have decided to close our little shop.

"I have absolutely loved the last six years and have made some life long friends through this lovely Leamington community.

"Fable will transition into Fable Interiors as I move full time into interior design.

"Do get in touch if you would like to discuss the services I offer in more detail by emailing: [email protected]

"Lastly, I'd like to thank you all so much for your support and for shopping with us.

"It has been a blast, I honestly feel so lucky to have been able to fulfil my dream of owning my own shop and I am really excited to start this next chapter in my career."

In January Thornton, which was also located in the Royal Priors Shopping centre, also closed down.

However the shopping centre has also seen some new additions recently.

In November 2019 a two-storey Mountain Warehouse opened in the former Second Cup unit. Then Clothing retailer Hobbs also recently opened in what used to be the Roman Originals clothing shop.

Then in December Cafe Brasilia opened in the lower mall unit, which was previously occupied by Patisserie Valerie, which closed when the chain went into administration.
