An aquatic and pet store in Essex has closed, prompting concerns from customers who recently paid for goods that have yet to be delivered.
Seapets in Tollgate, Stanway, closed earlier this week. Notices displayed on the locked building announced the closure but assured customers that no livestock had been left in the building, adding that all the animals had been rehomed.
But a number of customers left messages on Seapets’ Facebook page, alleging they are owed money or products, reports the Daily Gazette.
Both the Seapets website and Facebook page have now been taken down.
Colchester Council said its Environmental Health team recently undertook a routine inspection of the Seapets premises but it has not been confirmed whether this visit is connected to the store’s closure in any way.
