Newport has been left with another large empty store following the permanent closure of the Topman/Top Shop store in the heart of the town.
Although online retailer ASOS has agreed a £295million deal to acquire both brands, the deal does not include stores up and down the country.
It has been confirmed that the Isle of Wight store in St James’ Square has now closed.
A notice in the window reads:
“Katie, Sam & all the team here at Topshop Topman Isle of Wight would like to say a massive heartfelt thank you to all of you for your custom and friendship over the years.
“Stay safe, best wishes & warmest regards”.
Last October, Island Echo reported on the state of Newport’s High Street with 41 empty stores in and around the town.
