Another day, another retailer announces that it is shutting up shop in Canterbury.
After Nasons announced its departure, the newsagent and sweet shop at the foot of Dover Street is to close after 33 years’ business.
It has been called Dover Street News and Auntie Ammie’s Candy Shop, or simply referred to as Caggiano’s after the family which ran it.

Owner John Caggiano said: “After 33 years of trading in our family we will be closing our shop in Dover Street next week. Auntie Ammie’s Candy will continue to trade online which is now our main focus.
“In the meantime we will be selling most of our stock at discounted prices in preparation for our big move.
“Thank you to all who have used us over the years. Your support for independent businesses is truly appreciated.”
