We have been asked to make clear that an article published on this website in June stating that Trend DIY in Green Street is closing down is inaccurate.
The owner says this is not the case and we apologise for the error.
There has been an ironmongers at this location, in Old Town, from the turn of the last century. Originally it was called Simmonds, then Alans, followed by Masons and now Trend.
Trend DIY has been run by the same family since 1985. They have expanded the business in the last 31 years from a traditional ironmongers to a complete DIY store stocking timber, paint, adhesives, electricals, a huge range of light bulbs and many other lines - including ironmongery.
The store is also known locally for its seasonal stock and for the award-wining Christmas window displays.
A Trend spokesperson says they are very fortunate to have a loyal and reliable customer base and that the comments and feedback they have had from customers have shown how valuable this shop is to the local community. They would like to thank them for their continued support.
