Clothes Pegg draws the line

AFTER 28 years of business in the Clarence Valley, the doors of the Clothes Pegg shop in Grafton will be shut for the last time later this month.

Stock will be moved to a second shop at Moonee.

Manager of the Grafton and Moonee stores, Peg Mavin, said it was with a ‘sad but happy heart’ that the doors would be closed for the final time.

Peg, who looks after the stores for her grandson who took over the business some years ago, has been heavily involved in community work in the Clarence Valley since first opening a business almost 30 years ago.

“I have been involved in the Jacaranda Festival for years, sponsoring more than 27 girls and raising money for them,” she said.

A former Businesswoman of the Year for the Clarence Valley, Peg said it had been a great honour working with the locals for local causes.

Raising funds for both local and worthy world causes had been motivated from the heart.

“I’m heartbroken to be leaving after all these years,” she said.

“I feel like I’m being pushed out and I’m sad that my staff will lose their jobs.”

The Clothes Pegg, which has chosen to shut up shop in the Grafton Mall after a rental dispute, will continue to trade until April 18.

Grafton Mall Centre management staff declined to comment on details of the dispute.
