Last orders called for the Beer Boutique

The Beer Boutique, a specialist seller of ale on Mount Pleasant Road, has called time, after the store entered a Creditors Voluntary Liquidation [CVL] agreement, a form of insolvency.

The luxurious Off Licence closed ‘with immediate effect’ last week after announcing the news to its beer loving Twitter following.

It said: “We’re sad to announce today that The Beer Boutique has entered into a CVL, as a result of which we will be closing all three stores with immediate effect.

“On this very sad day, we’d like to thank all our valued customers for your support of the business over the past seven years.”

The other stores that closed were located in Putney and Wandsworth in London.

Beer Boutique opened in Tunbridge Wells in the summer of 2016, selling more than 350 bottled beers and three different draught ales, which the store said  were ‘aimed to craft a variety of high-quality beers and ales so the customer could find their perfect beer’.

The fine ale retailer is the latest in a number of local shops to announce closures.

As reported in the Times, the high street has already lost French cheese and wine emporium, Fromage and French and Cardmarket on the precinct who join an ever growing list that includes: H&M, Gandy’s, New Look, Pasta Madre, Pets in Town, Cau, Maplin, Mothercare, Cath Kidston, Miss Selfridge and Jacques Vert, not to mention a raft of big name stores such as BHS and Argos.

From 1 April, struggling retailers will be entitled to additional business rate relief under the rate relief scheme, which central government has introduced to help the struggling high street.
