BARRY could be about to get funky as kids clothing, toys and gift shop Funky Monkey moves into town.

However, while it is good news for Barry, it’s bad news for Penarth with Funky Monkey announcing they are closing their shop on Windsor Road.

Funky Monkey say they are running a closing down sale in Penarth from today, February 23, and it is set to finish promptly at 5pm on February 28.

Then they will be “shortly” moving to High Street, Barry – keep an eye on their Facebook page for more details.

A family business established in 2015, they say they are passionate about delivering the highest customer service and beautiful high-quality products.

In a statement on their Facebook page, Funky Monkey said they will continue to trade at their stores in Cirencester and on their website.

The statement went: “After nine wonderful years in Windsor Road our time has come to an end at this location, and it’s somebody else’s chance to call the shop ‘home’.

“We will shortly be relocating to High Street, Barry. Keep an eye on our Facebook for further details.”

“Lots of love and thanks for your support, Justin, Rebecca and the girls.”
