I'm sure by now, many of you would have heard of Peter Parr's closing of his shop Chess Discount Sales in Sydney.
Peter is retiring at the end of this year. The lease on his shop was due to expire last year but Peter got a year's extension but refused to sign on for another 3 years lease.
Peter was hoping to sell off his business but if he is unable to find a buyer, he will sell whatever's left in his shop online towards the end of the year.
I went down to the shop last Saturday to get some chess material with a friend and my brother-in-law and noticed that popular items have already been sold so if you want to pick up something nice, now is the best time to get it.
Btw, should you need to pay a visit, there's a bit of renovation going on at the front of his shop and instead of entering via the usual flight of steps downstairs at the front of his shop, you need to enter via the main building doorway instead.
I wish Peter the very best of luck in his future endeavours.
