Savers confirm closure day

Created on 19/05/2022 @ 09:54


Welshpool’s Savers will close its doors for the last time on June 11, delivering another devastating blow to the town centre.

The six members of staff were told a fortnight ago that they would be facing redundancy, informed that after “much careful consideration by the senior retail team” Savers had taken the “difficult decision to close the Welshpool Savers store”.

“This is due to the lease coming to an end without the landlord giving the option of renewal and means your role is now in a potential redundancy situation,” they were told in a letter.

Whilst we have still not been informed officially by the retail chain despite a request, staff were told that the company will follow a “fair and thorough process regarding this potential redundancy and explore all options available to us”.

In response to our story, shoppers reacted with anger that Welshpool would be losing another high street brand so soon after Sainsbury's, HSBC Bank and W.H. Smith all called it a day over the past year or so, with their premises remaining empty.
