Local shoppe to soon close its doors

Ye Olde Milke Shoppe may soon be closing its doors due to lack of demand for its product.

"A sudden decrease in demand has left us unable to maintain our old production," says Mother Lara. "If we don't soon see interest regaining, we will have no choice but to end production alltogether."

It would seem that the shoppe's main patron has decided that he prefers fast food, something Lara is not happy about.

"If he were choosing something equally nourishing, that would be one thing, but kids today and their "I want it now and I want it fast" are losing out on the important things like quality and nutrition!"

Production has been slipping steadily over the last week at Ye Olde Milke Shoppe and predictions have it that they may have to close their doors forever as early as this coming weekend. Until then, the shoppe's owner is holding her breath, waiting to see if a suitable replacement for their service can be found.

"If he is healthy, I am happy, and we'll be happy to reopen our doors in a couple of years when a new demand arrives."

Only you would write a press release when you are on mat leave and don't need to actually do any communications work!

Oh and regarding the suitable replacement regarding the shop closing.. please don't tell me you are outsourcing overseas. Thats pretty common in the industry. Noooooooo!
Thanks.

What a great way to write about it! You are so lucky to now get to put whatever you want in your body and not worry about what's coming out!
