Keep Fashion Fabrics open!

This petition had 128 supporters

Fashion Fabrics has been open and a part of Banbury Town for over 50 years. Alan who currently runs it has kept it going for the last 15 years and has been forced to close his doors due to high rental prices and lack of customers. Running this store is his life and has devestated him that it has come to this. Please help. 

If you have ever been into Fashion Fabrics you will know that it's a warm and welcoming place and does not deserve to be closed down. Alan is loving, helpful and always up for a conversation.

The community needs him to stay. Although many people will not be effected by his departure, so many more will feel his absence and will not know how to fill the void. Internet shopping has caused most of the issues. Please support your local businesses first. 

If you have ever shopped at Fashion Fabrics, please pop in and spend a little money. A little can go a long way and if we can keep them open for even another 6 months, it'll be a small achievement. 

I have been shopping there for my whole life, but I cannot support them myself, we need to think of the effect closing such store will have on the makers in our community. 

Please don't make him close his doors at Christmas. What kind of Christmas will we be giving him and his family if we don't come together as a loving community and help him.
