St Helens town centre Curry's to close
11:15am Wednesday 22nd August 2012 in News
ST HELENS town centre’s high street faces another loss next month when electrical store Curry’s closes.
The shop on Church Street will shut in September, with the company seeking to relocate staff to the Curry’s megastore and PC World at Ravenhead Retail Park.
A Curry’s spokesman said: “The store is closing when the lease expires on September 8 when the lease expires. We are currently looking at relocating all colleagues.
“The closure is part of the ongoing store portfolio review that was announced in 2008. It is not a reaction to the current economic climate.”
The spokesman denied high rental rates had played a factor in its decision to give up a prime location in the town centre.
