After being on Ely’s High Street for 23 years, women’s fashion retailer New Look is set to close its doors on November 19th.
Staff are said to be gutted according to a source close to a member of staff and it’s thought that rental costs of the property was the deciding factor. “They are all gutted! Been negotiating with the landlord for months but to no avail” was the comment given.
Earlier this year New Look did announce closures of up to 60 stores in order to restructure and make the business more profitable. This closure joins several others this year including Mr Simms, The Yarn Room and another fashion retailer Select.
Spotted in Ely approached New Look Press Office for a quote but didn’t want to give one at this time but did confirm closure will happen on the 19th November.
