One of Southport’s oldest shops is closing after more than six decades of trading reports Andrew Brown.

Kelly’s Electrical will say farewell later this month, having served generations of families since it first opened in 1957.

It was established by Jack Kelly, who ran the iconic electrical goods shop for over 50 years, gaining a fine reputation for his incredible knowledge and his unbeatable customer service, until he retired in September 2020. He sadly died in August 2021.

The shop was passed to John and Kim Kelly, who converted part of the premises into Kose Sensory Play.

John Kelly said: “After 56 years of trading, we have decided, for many reasons, to close Kelly’s.

Last day of opening will be Friday 30th June.

“I know if my Grandad was still around he would want to say thank you for the decades worth of custom.

”Thank you all.

“Please pop in over the next two weeks.”
