Halesowen faggot shop to close after no buyers interested

There has been no interest in a 125-year-old family food business which went on sale with its trademark recipes for faggots, the owners have said.

The Cook Shop in Old Hill, near Halesowen in the West Midlands, will now close on 30 August.

Nigel Brazier, the fourth generation of his family to run the shop, said it was on sale for £90,000 but no potential buyers had come forward.

"It saddens me on several levels, the financial side of it; it would be nice to sell the business as a going concern but also for it to keep going," he said.
