And it’s goodbye from Griggles

After almost 50 years in business, Tenby-based party retailer Griggles will be closing down at the end of November following the owner Roland Grigg’s decision to retire.

The shop, which  has provided fancy dress costumes, partyware and props to the town for almost half a century, will be sorely missed, as it has spanned generations of customers looking for product for everything from Halloween to hen parties.

“My wife Michelle is cutting down her hours from the NHS in early December, so we made a joint decision to spend this Christmas together and close Griggles, but we’ve had a long and successful time here, and it’s been a pleasure to serve the local community,” he told the Tenby Observer.

Griggles first opened in April 1970, initially stocking toys and gifts. A joke section was soon added and it wasn’t long before fancy dress followed.

“Everyone seems to have a story of hiring or buying a fancy dress outfit from the shop down the years, so I guess we’ve been a big part of Tenby party-goers life – from those kids dressing up for school events, through to adults hitting the pubs on New Year’s Eve,” Roland continued. “I have shifted a lot of stock since word got out that we are closing, but there is still plenty here on offer for anyone planning for the festive period.”
