Keep Newport Thorntons chocolate shop open!

This petition had 210 supporters

On 29th April 2017 Thorntons ltd are planning on closing the Newport branch of its chocolate shops. This shop has been in its current location for 20 years and means that if this closes, the nearest chocolatier will be in Cardiff or people will have to buy online.

At the start of the Thorntons survey they state that they put their customers first...well they are clearly not putting their customers of Newport and surrounding areas first by taking away what many consider to be a popular, friendly and excellently staffed service in this lovely, quaint shop. The staff in the shop are second to none and nothing is too much trouble...the shop supplies its customers with special chocolate gifts for all occasions that can be gift wrapped in the shop with luxury paper and bows for a small charge. The look on children's faces (and adults alike!) at the sheer selection is lovely to see, and I fear we, the community of Newport and surrounding areas face losing this traditional little shop.

I would like to be able to show Thorntons ltd that this shop means a lot to its customers and see if we can keep this traditional little shop open so that the next generation can experience its wonderful treats and excellent personal customer service first hand...not through a computer by having to buy online. Please sign to support us in this cause.
