It is not known why the Chiswick store is closing and we have asked the company's head office for comment. The company has continued to open stores recently in Belfast, Huddersfield and Middlesborough amongst others, as well as a store in the Debenhams in White city's Westfield Shopping Centre. The nearest similar cafe is in Hammersmith.

The chain has over 115 outlets across the UK and Ireland.

The first Patisserie Valerie store was opened in Frith Street in Soho in 1926 by a Belgian woman, Madame Valerie whose efforts to bring continental patisserie to the UK were a great success.

Patisserie Valerie is part of the Patisserie Holdings group. The group operates under five different brand names: Patisserie Valerie, Druckers Vienna Patisserie, Philpotts Ltd, Baker and Spice and Flour Power City Bakery. There are about 80 shops in the UK and the company employs over 2,500 staff.

In 2014 the company floated shares on the stock market to make money to pay down debt.
