A WREXHAM business has announced it will close its city centre store next month after 15 years of trading.

'The Secondhand Shed' in Wrexham has sadly announced its shop is closing and will be online only.

Owner Simon Hall admits the increase in rent and bills has influenced his decision to close the much-loved second-hand shop.

After being located in Pen-Y-Bryn for over 12-years, Mr Hall moved to Lord Street in Wrexham just three-years ago.


However, due to the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, the business will be moving online.

Mr Hall said: "I would like to thank everyone for the kind words we have received after they heard the news and for all the support we have had for our little shop on the outskirts of town.

"We first started in our town centre shop 3 and half years [ago] and it’s been an amazing experience. We have made some great friends and had many a laugh with the banter. We will miss it."

He added: "I also want to thank my family and friends as I became a below the knee amputee in September of 2020 just before we moved so without the help and support of them I wouldn’t have even had the shop in Lord Street."

The Wrexham store sells high quality used goods which customers say gives it a unique edge, but after what Mr Hall describes as being their worst Christmas period ever, he was left with no choice but to make the devastating decision.


Mr Hall has sold many weird and wonderful items over the years and, speaking to the Leader following the move to Lord Street, told of the irony of selling prosthetic legs. He had his lower left leg amputated following 40 years' worth of trouble with it after an accident as a child.

An exact closing date is yet to be confirmed other than it will be mid February. 

All remaining stock following the closing down sale will then move online only.
