We have been asked by Margaret Swift to publish the following statement.
"Many people in the organ and keyboard world will know that Nick Swift, my husband and co-founder of Swift Music in Bristol, tragically died last September at the early age of 57. The shop has continued to trade very successfully and indeed could continue to do so indefinitely. However I now know, as many of you who have suffered the loss of a life-long spouse will already know, that the time comes when it is time to accept what has happened and embrace a new life.
I have now reached this point and have decided that at the end of May, I am going to close the shop.
This will give me more time to pursue my other interests, spend more time with my children, and take the opportunity to go travelling and enjoy some holidays- something Nick and I sacrificed whilst dedicating ourselves to the shop since we opened in 2000.
The website will remain, as I will still be available to provide the back up support that we have always given to our customers. Any remaining stock for sale will also be available there. I would like to thank all customers for their support throughout nearly thirteen years trading at Swift Music in Stoke Bishop, Bristol, and for the many true friendships made with customers over the years. An open day will be held in the shop all day on 22nd April, for any customers and friends who would like to join us for music and chat. Light refreshments will be provided."
