Thirteen years after opening Jones the Grocer has called time on its Border business.
The Swift Street cafe and grocer will close on Christmas Eve with owner Prem McKinnon ready for a change and more time with family.
With her husband Kevin travelling for business and her daughter Kattriya studying at university in Melbourne Mrs McKinnon said "it was time" but she will miss the customers.
"That is what I will miss most, our wonderful customers and the friends I have made over all these years," she said.

Mrs McKinnon said despite only having nine more days of business she won't be "rushing out the door".
"Christmas is coming and that means the busy season which I love," she said.
"I am looking forward to the next week as there are so many wonderful people to thank for supporting me over the years and welcome all of them to come and say goodbye."
Anyone with gift vouchers are asked to come and use them before December 24 or to contact her for a full reimbursement.
Jones the Grocer is an international franchise business with stores across Australia, Cambodia, Singapore, United Arab Emirates and Qatar.
