BOURNEMOUTH'S first 100 per cent vegan supermarket will be closing its doors. 

Sunrise Organics—Vegan Health Store posted on social media that the shop will close for good in late July. 

In a Facebook post, the owner, Mark Lewis, said:

"Well, as they say, all good things must come to an end.

"The sun will be setting for the final time on Sunrise Organics at the end of July.

"This has not been an easy decision for me and has taken a huge amount of soul searching and being honest with myself over the last few months.

"I have reached a point where my physical, financial, and mental resources are pretty much spent, and I can't now dedicate myself to Sunrise the way it deserves.

"Our lease comes to completion at the end of July, so it almost feels like the planets have aligned and provided the answer.

"We will, of course, do everything we can during this period to ensure your experience of Sunrise Organics is of the same high standard as we have always sought to deliver."

Mark added: "It has been a great joy and an enormous privilege to have served you over the last nine years. Sincere love and thanks to you all."
