Horseys giftware shop, in North Street, shut for the final time on Saturday (September 23), after 49 years in the town.
Owners Elizabeth and Graham are retiring.
Wareham Mayor, Carole Turner, and Deputy Mayor, Marian Cotton, dropped by to thank the pair for their efforts over so many years, presented them with a bottle of Champagne and an orchid, as well as a special certificate.
“It was a very sad day to see one of our oldest shops closing,” said Wareham Town Councillor, Sue Wheatley.
