Shop to go but Bonk brand to live on

A POPULAR Evesham shop is closing its doors at the end of July and has launched an ‘Everything Must Go’ sale.

But far from bad news for Evesham, the closure of Bonk on Port Street will herald a new era for the well-known Vale brand.

Owner Kim Dunn has taken the decision to close the store on Port Street and hopes customers will help clear the Port Street shop by the end of July.

Bonk will live on with scooter lessons running from the Pershore Riverside Activity centre through the summer holidays and then on Saturday mornings from August.

As well as scooters, there will be other activities on offer like archery, the new Stand Up Paddle Boarding.

Kim herself will continue to promote Evesham and build on the immensely successful Port Street Fayre in June which saw visitors flock to the historic part of the town centre.

“It is sad to close the shop, but it’s a conscious decision, and will allow me to focus on other things,” she said.

“Everything must go from the shop, including the shop fittings, so if you fancy a bargain, pop in before it’s all gone.”

“I am working more on things like events, promotions for the town, Bonk brand t-shirts and helping local charities with their media and marketing.”

“I’ve been a bit of a dynamo for local community events and promotions over the last three years, all totally voluntary, so it’s great I can diversify and do this in a more official capacity.

“I’m really excited about this new chapter for me personally and a huge thank you to everyone whose supported Bonk over the years,” she added.
