Birthdays and Thorntons set to close in Daventry

BIRTHDAYS greeting card store in Bowen Square is set to close its doors in the coming months.

The move will also see the Thorntons chocolate shop close down, as it’s part of the Birthdays franchise in Daventry.

All Birthdays stores across the country are due to close as they are part of the financially troubled Clinton Cards group.

Administrators Zolfo Cooper were called into the chain last week and subsequently announced it will close 350 stores nationwide.

Peter Saville, of Zolfo Cooper, said: “Given the sheer size of the Clinton Cards retail estate and the overall performance, we were left with no alternative to this difficult decision.”
