Top Table Florists has become the latest Isle of Wight business to be hit by the recession.
YET another Isle of Wight small business has closed due to the on-going recession.
The florist, Top Table in Scarrots Lane, has closed its doors for good due to the current economic climate.
An announcement of the closure was displayed in the shop’s window thanking the shop’s loyal customers and directing them to Flower Garden or Doris Pinks.
The Isle of Wight County Press attempted to contact the owners of the shop but were unable to do so as the paper went to press.

Graveyards. Can't get my head on giving dead people flowers, either at a cremation or burial. Why cut and kill a load of flowers because something else has died? Much rahter see them growing in the garden for a long time now!

Mike, I for one have never needed to buy flowers. The main reason is because when I am out driving I see fresh bunches of flowers propped up against lamp posts, so I take advantage of the careless people who must drop them at junctions and I take them home and put them in water.

I wonder if they had calculated the 'Dead Money'. Money which HAD to paid/calculated for each and EVERY day. Rent, Rates, Gas, Water and Electric Standing charges before using any. Insurance and NS Contributions. When I moved into a large factory in Sandown in 1982, yes 30 years ago, my 'dead money' per day was £7.00 equal to £17.00 a day now according to http://www.moneysorter.co.uk/calculator_inflation2.html#calculatorChristmas Day, Sunday, Easter Sunday, every day. Soooooooooo many business people have not done this exercise.I wonder if the florists did ;-)Nothing you can do about it, but useful to consider when you have a bad day to make you think about another line? Different advertising?

Kevin, I shall explain for the hard of hearing. Top Table was a florist. Interflora is a florist. Flora is a margarine. If I can help with anything else, please ask.
