    Mate was down Whitby on Monday called at shop to find it empty

    Closed/refurbish ?

    Any one know if shop now closed.

    It seems that more and more local shops are closing down not only tackles shops but shops in general due to less foot traffic on high sts, especially with most people doing their purchasing online. Just a shame as they can't compete with online prices :(

    Main concern will be for both local anglers & party boat users.

    People unable to dig/collect bait fresh will have to go elsewhere

    Party users used to have access to early opening for last minute gear etc.

    Perhaps a good outcome for other tackle shop,used that one in preference

    Due to better service and to keep it going as an alternative to closed one.

    Are they still selling online? the ebay site is still open?
    There is still hook line and sinker. 5 minutes walk, supplies bait and early opening for the boats customers.
