Store founder, James Cameron, told the BBC: "There were more people in the sale room than I have ever had in the history of the business.

"I'm sad that it is our final day of trading but I'm pleased that we've gone out on a high note.

"It's been an enjoyable business but I'm sure all those pianos have gone to good homes."
