An ethical gift shop is to close its two Brighton branches in an “honest, open and principled” way after falling foul of competition from the internet.
Evolution is closing its stores in Bond Street and Western Road and is holding sales in both branches.
In a statement on its website, the Cambridge-based chain said: “Sadly after over 30 years of bringing ethically sourced gifts and home ware to the high street we will be closing our business down over the next few months.
“Our aim now is to close in an ethical way that preserves our reputation being an honest, open and principled retailer.
The retail landscape has changed so much since we started trading in the 1980s and we now find ourselves unable to compete with pressure from larger companies and the internet.”
