Nerdy Coffee Co in Mardol, Shrewsbury has also had problems when the river floods the water enters its cellar space.

But in a statement on its Facebook page, the shop announced its sad news to its army of followers.

"Hey Nerds! Today we have some sad news," said a spokesperson on social media.

"It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that our home Nerdy Coffee Co. is to close and cease trading within the near future."

They say the reason is that the current economic climate and trading conditions have made it more and more impossible for a local business like theirs to survive.

"This was underlined this week when we told that our energy bill would be more than doubling moving forward."
