An independent furniture store has revealed it plans to downsize one of its two premises due to high business rates.

Poppy Greens Home, based on Broad Street in Wells, Somerset, has confirmed to local media, SomersetLive, that its store will be split into two units with a new tenant soon to be unveiled in the larger space.

The company, ran by Lesley and Steve Baker, will continue to operate from the Broad Street site, but in the smaller of the two spaces, as well as its other location on Queen Street.

Poppy Greens Home, which specialises in a variety of products from soft furnishings to furniture and lighting for the home and garden, confirmed that work is currently underway to divide the two shops, with the new unnamed tenant set to move in later this month.
