Who wants to buy a Magic Bean?

Is there anyone out there who wants to buy a Magic Bean?
That is the question on the lips of Northampton’s coffee and cake lovers with the news that the popular St Giles Street cafe will close if no-one comes forward.
Owner Michella Dos Santos posted on Facebook this week that she was planning to close the cafe:
“After a particularly tough year and a half, with family bereavements, three break-ins, daily theft and a huge decline of foot fall, I sadly feel it is time to take off my hat (witches hat of course) and say goodbye gracefully.”
However Michella joined Chris Harris on the NLive Radio breakfast show today to reveal that she would sell the business if a realistic offer was made.
Update 2021: The cafe has survived and can now be found on the ground floor of Northampton train station. For more information see Magic Bean Emporium Facebook page.
