A town centre chip shop and cafe which served in Wrexham for over twenty years, has closed.

‘The Pebble’ fish and chip shop / cafe on Argyle Street has been a recognised fixture in Wrexham for 22 years – however its doors closed for good on Saturday 2nd July.

Speaking to Wrexham.com, Jan and Stephen Jones from The Pebble stated that it was ‘very sad’ to have to close the business. However they noted that footfall in the town centre has fallen ‘dramatically’ over the last eight years – with things getting worse in the past 12 months.

The owners of The Pebble continued onto add: “It is very sad to see the town as it is, it used to be a very thriving busy town. We had the business for 22 years, it has been in Wrexham for about 25 years or more before we bought it.

“We would like to thank all our customers, staff and suppliers for supporting us over the years.”

The Pebble is one of a string of closures in the town centre recently, with Peacocks just around the corner on Regent Street also closing earlier this week.

BHS on Henblas Street and Store Twenty One on Regent Street are also set to close in the coming months.
