THE long-term owner of Clevedon Music Shop is keen to let musicians know he is still in business after one of the units he leases was put up for rent.

Bob Bailey has owned the shop since 1989 and it has been based at numbers 17 and 19 Alexandra Road since 1992.

His 21-year lease on the two units is up at the end of this month, when he will move all of his products solely into number 17.

An advert has recently been published advertising number 19 for rent. However, it has prompted some customers to ask whether the whole shop is closing.

Bob said: “We have had quite a few people asking if the shop is closing down.

“I actually hope to stay here for as long as can be.”
