Ishka has closed the doors of its Koroit Street store, following in the footsteps of other regional Victorian shops.
In July, Ishka announced its stores in Bendigo, Ballarat and Shepparton would close in the wake of constant lockdowns in Victoria, and said the bohemian homewares and clothing store would instead focus on capital cities.
The future of the store in Warrnambool has been in the spotlight a number of times in recent years.
Although, at the time, business owner Toby Darvall said he was not sure about the future of the store which employed eight people.
Ishka had been operating in Koroit Street in Warrnambool since 2012.
The business was contacted for comment.
