On 9 August earlier on this month, it was spotted that the storefront signage atop the store unit has been stripped and taken down. All inside stock has been removed earlier for good.

The closure was quietly-announced on the official localised Hinckley PDSA store Facebook page back in May, however the signage was only removed this month.

In the saddening closing down statement on Facebook, a spokesperson for the Hinckley store said: “After much work done on the store, fantastic work from the volunteers, and the amazing customer support, we’re sad to say that the head office have decided to close the store permanently.

“We know we are not the only store to close and others have sadly followed with us.

“We want to thank everyone for the amazing support over the years please due keep supporting the PDSA as the pets still need us all. Thank you.”

New openings

Whilst the PDSA store has sadly shut its door for good, Hinckley has welcomed in many new town centre occupants.

These include the new ‘nationwide’ discount retailer MaxiSaver, family-run café and bar, RuSiana’s, and Shape-U, a new appointment-only personal training studio.

The town will also welcome in a new live music venue and bar in Revival Hinckley, who are currently in the process of opening whilst they are refurbishing the inside of the space.
