Welwyn Garden City card store closes
A GREETINGS cards and gift shop in WGC has closed.
Birthdays, in the Howard Centre, closed for good today (Saturday), after the company decided not to renew its lease.
Peter Brooks, manager of the Howard Centre, said: “Birthdays came to the end of their lease and decided not to renew their contract.
“We’ll be sad to see them go. They’ve been in the centre for some time and it’s always nice to retain traders.”
Mr Brook confirmed that the unit, next to the Howard Centre main entrance, will now be taken over by Carphone Warehouse.
