High Street shuts up shop

The last time Creasey's was forced to close, it was down to the Occupying Forces, but now corona virus has closed it and the rest of Guernsey's High Street.

The family run chain of stores, which includes the Marks and Spencer and Joules franchises announced it was closing all of its St Peter Port and St Sampson shops yesterday, just hours before the island was put into lockdown by the officials leading the fight against covid-19.

As one of the oldest names on the High Street, Creasey's has been around for 120 years, surviving the Second World War, despite a bomb going off in St Peter Port Harbour which forced it to close in 1944.

Now, as the island is in lockdown only essential shops, like the M&S food franchises are allowed to stay open anyway, but Creaseys has assured customers it will be back.

Other food shops, pharmacies and essential retailers are allowed to open. Non essential shops have to remain closed for at least the next 14 days.
