Next on Chester's Greyhound Park closes for good at 5pm tomorrow (Thursday, February 1).
The clothing retailer, which has been a feature of the retail park for many years, was originally due to close on Friday, February 9, allegedly because of issues with the lease of the premises.
But the date has now been brought forward, according to a sign in the window.
And it has been confirmed by a Next spokesperson that staff currently working at the store will be made redundant because of the closure.
It is thought they can apply for jobs at other branches, which include Chester's Eastgate Street, Broughton Park and Cheshire Oaks.The spokesperson told The Chronicle: "We can confirm that the staff from our Chester Greyhound Park store have been made redundant."
