Strand Street bookshop to close after 86 years

Lexicon will shut its doors for final time in July

A Manx business that's had a presence on Strand Street for 86 years will close its doors for the last time next month.

The Lexicon bookshop has been around since before the Second World War providing customers with books, stationary and giftware.

It's closing on 2 July.

A message posted by the shop on social media said: "We would like to wholeheartedly thank all of our loyal customers who have supported the business over the past 86 years and to wish you all good health and happiness in the years ahead.

"It has been a pleasure to have been of service to our Island community."
