Miles of Value in Fordingbridge closes after 30 years

A FORDINGBRIDGE shop has closed for the final time – after 30 years of providing shoppers with what they need.

Miles of Value, which sold everything from toys and games to stationery and cards, has shut up shop.

Helga Whatley paid tribute to customers when posting about the closure of the High Street store.

“Well it really is an end of an era,” she said. “The staff of Miles of Value would like to say thank you for your support over the last 30 years.

“We have enjoyed watching all the children literally grow up in front of our eyes, and then coming with children of their own, and hope we have given the people of Fordingbridge happy memories of us too.”

And shoppers responded in kind.

Mervyn Webb said: “Thank you all, Fordingbridge is going to miss this go-to shop.”

“Will so miss the shop and all you lovely ladies who are so kind and helpful. A great loss to Fordingbridge,” said Janet Welch.

“Thank you for the last 30 years.”

Sophie Hall said she was “sad to see this shop go”.

“It’s always good to have a shop like this in a small town, what a shame,” she said.

And Pete White added: “A huge loss and thanks to you all for all the years of service to the town.”
