A DUNFERMLINE city centre shop will close its doors after its owner admitted she has "no fight left".

Grain and Sustain on High Street had provided a zero waste option for shoppers, as well as hosting Cheese Club nights and other activities.

The owner says that recently being given notice on the store's lease "is the straw that has broken the camels back".

A statement posted on social media said that their landlord was effecting a break clause in the contract and had given them notice on the lease.

This has come with no prior warning and the team was left shocked by it

Although a move to alternative premises was considered, the owner said that "this is the straw that has broken the camels back, and I have no fight left".

Like other businesses, COVID, the rising cost of living, Brexit, and war in Ukraine have all had an impact, but there was an acknowledgement that there is an appetite for zero waste shopping and excellent cheese in Dunfermline.

The owner added that is someone was interested in putting forward an offer for the kit to start their own zero waste shop, they would get "100 per cent support" to get set up.

Grain and Sustain thanked its customers for their supported and asked them to "continue shopping with us as we wind things down in the next few weeks".

The final Cheese Club is to be held next month on Friday, June 2, with any outstanding vouchers redeemable for a cheese box.

There are also Grain and Sustain stores in Kirkcaldy, Burntisland and St Monans.
