THE Chester branch of the women and children’s clothing shop Monsoon is due to close at the end of April.
A spokesperson from the head office in London confirmed that the store, based in the Grosvenor Shopping Centre, will shut but would not indicate the number of staff affected by the closure.
She said: “Decisions to close branches are taken on a shop-by-shop basis.” She did however confirm that the Accessorize store on Eastgate Street will stay open.
A spokesman from Grosvenor Shopping Centre said: “We are aware that Monsoon will close at the end of their lease and have been notified that the last day of trade is April 30.”
Monsoon has 380 stores in the UK and the company has plans to extend its international reach and develop its online presence.
