I can only imagine what this store would have been like all those years ago when it first opened and rue the fact that modern shopping habits have made the store unprofitable and the doors have been closed.

Hello VM1960 Thank you for your review which I am of course extremely disappointed to receive, and one which I believe to be wholly unfair, as I will explain. Since taking over Burgins Perfumery 4 years ago, I have set about ensuring that Burgins is...More
