Trespass has announced a store will close early in the new year

Trespass is the latest retailer to announce it will shut a store in the UK.

A branch is set to close early next year on Sunday, January 28.

Trespass will close its outlet in Blackburn, East Lancashire.

Earlier this year, the retailer announced it would shut six stores across the UK.

This included locations in Harrogate, Canterbury, Derby, Solihull, Workington and Chesterfield.

The stores started to shut in July after 'closing down' signs were seen outside some of the branches.

Trespass is an outdoor brand best known for selling outdoor clothing, footwear and equipment.

In 2018, it opened its 200th UK store after opening 32 branches within the year.

Now, as stores close, shoppers can visit nearby locations or shop online.

This comes as the UK high street continues to change, with popular brands opening and closing stores.

British shoppers have moved towards online shopping, with 53 per cent of Britons preferring to shop for clothes online.

Recent research by NTT DATA UK&I added 61 per cent of shoppers would be more encouraged to shop in stores with self-service checkouts were available.

British fashion retailer New Look has announced it will close one more store this week.

A spokesperson for New Look told GB News: “As part of the normal course of business, New Look occasionally closes stores, while also undertaking relocations and new site openings.

“While some sites have closed recently, we have opened a number of new stores this year and we remain on the lookout for appropriate new opportunities across the country.”

British discount retailer Poundstretcher announced it will close stores in the coming weeks.
