Melbourne retail institution Tafts to close down
FIRST on 3AW
Another Melbourne retail institution is closing its doors.
Neil Mitchell this morning revealed Tafts — The Pen People is shutting down after more than a century in the business.
The store, based in Centreway Arcade (pictured below) at 259 Collins Street, will have its last day of trading mid-August.
Tafts opened in 1906, specialising in high-end pens, some costing well in excess of $1000.
