Ten Little Monkeys, the Cheshire kidswear independent, is to close after five years of trading.
Owners Claire Yildirim and Emma Wright set up Ten Little Monkeys in 2008 after spotting a market for a premium kidswear shop in Wilmslow. Its brands included No Added Sugar and Diesel.
It is unclear why the shop is closing but a text message sent by Wright to the store’s database on Thursday said: “It’s with great sadness that we wanted you to know Ten Little Monkeys is closing down … Thank you for all your support over the past five years. It meant a lot to us.”
Ten Little Monkeys was highly commended for Best New Business at the Drapers Awards in 2010 and listed in Drapers Top 100 Inspiring Indies in 2013.
