Falls Road bakery and deli shuts as price hikes bite
A west Belfast bakery and deli has become the latest victim of the cost of living crisis, closing its doors after four years in business.
Tuckers Bakery and Deli blamed “crazy food prices” and bill hikes are the reasons it has had to shut its doors after four years in business.
Writing on Facebook, the Falls Road business’s owners said: “Guys its with a heavy heart we write this post, but unfortunately due to the rising price increases in bills and crazy food prices we have decided to close our doors permanently,” they wrote on social media.
“It has been a very hard decision for us as a family run business and we are truly heart broken, but unfortunately with Covid and crazy price increases, it’s just not sustainable anymore to keep going.
“We have met some fantastic people over the years and we would like to thank every customer from the bottom of our hearts for their support and custom over the last 4 years.
“We will hopefully be back in the near future when things settle for hospitality. We honestly don’t know what more to say but thank you all so much. Much love Nicola and Dale.”
