The Bowral Newsagency ( Newsxpress ) has had to close due to the impacts of the bushfires and COVID19.
Owner Joe who took over the business a year ago says they've pretty much been trading under water over that time
He says they did get some rental assistance but couldn't get any long term deal done.
Joe believes the newsagency business is on its last legs unless people can diversify.
He and Nick have thanked locals for their support over that time.
