I heard the owner was the son of a rich bloke. The son was given the shop, but had to make it work and support himself for a number of years before he qualified for his trust fund or similar. He wound it up as he qualified.

I saw it all on Facebook last year, I'm pretty sure some of the people working there have set up on their own, albeit on a smaller scale.
Can't remember the details though.
