RUMOUR CONFIRMED

A family-owned retailer will close its Melbourne CBD store of 111 years on Saturday.

Outdoors and camping store, Mitchells Adventure, will close its Russell Street flagship store.

The shop was founded in 1909, as Mitchells Army and Navy store.

The business is moving on due to the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns, a hotel development planned for the site and rising land tax.

Owner of Mitchells Adventure, David Cohen, has told the Herald Sun he is exploring new sites for a Melbourne flagship store.

Mitchells Adventure will continue to operate in other states.
