The department store is currently running a sale until its closure at the end of the month.

The Bristol Guild of Applied Art, locally referred to as The Guild, has sadly announced they will be closing their doors at the end of May.

The venue was founded in 1908 and was inspired by the philosophy of William Morris, an English textile designer, poet, artist, writer and socialist activist associated with the British Arts and Crafts movement.
