ONE OF MORAY’S most popular Bakers is to close their doors for the final time at the end of this month.

Campbell Bakers have announced that “family reasons” have forced them to close their doors after 20 years trading in Lossiemouth and Elgin.

S Campbell & Co opened their first shop in Lossiemouth in 1995 before opening a second on North Street in Bishopmill two years later. The business quickly established a reputation for their traditional butteries, oatcakes and ‘winies’.

The company also briefly moved into the catering business in 2014 when they took on the management of the café at Elgin Community Centre.

The closure was announced through their Social Media page this week with a statement that read: “It saddens us to inform you that due to family reasons Campbell Bakers will be closing for business on Saturday 29th August 2015

“To all our valued customers we thank you for 20 years of support, be it the highs and the lows.

“It has been our privilege to be a part of this community and we greatly appreciate all the years you have allowed us to serve you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and wish you all the very best in the future.”

Customers were quick to react to the news with Ritchie Dawes saying: “So sorry to hear, you always have the time of day to say Hello – and you sell the best butteries anywhere!”

It is the third shop on Lossiemouth’s Queen Street to close in recent months, with the Rare Hairdressing Salon and Clark & Son butchers having already shut their doors in the town.
