Bridge Mall shoe shop Polly Shoes is set to close its doors for good.
The women's shoes store, owned by long-time Ballarat business Faull's, announced to staff all three locations - Ballarat, Hobart and Launceston - would be closing due to a "dramatic downturn in business".
"We have given clear outlines of our decision which have been incredibly hard to make and we thank everyone for their compassion and understanding," Faull's Shoes managing director Ben Faull said to staff in a statement on Friday.
