A city-centre stationery shop will close down after less than a year of business.

Mooch, in St George’s Street, has put up signs for 20 per cent discounts on merchandise to clear stock ahead of the closure.

The closing date is July 13.

The shop, which opened last year in August, is part of a small chain owned by Cardzone. The major retailer bought the brand, which started in Northamptonshire, in 2021.

Mooch stores sell a range of contemporary and traditional cards including birthday, blank, humour and occasions from a vast array of suppliers. 

A representative of the business declined to comment when contacted by the Chronicle.

The building was formerly home to Paperchase before the shop closed for the final time in March 2023.
