Preston BHS closure date announced

Have your say

The Preston branch of BHS is set to close within the week.

The fashion, furniture and homeware store is currently in the middle of its 50% off closing-down sale ahead of its closure on Saturday July 23. The Fishergate branch will be one of the first to shut.

The chain began its gradual disappearance from the high street last month after administrators failed to find a buyer. Administrator Duff & Phelps said that 8,000 permanent jobs are likely to be lost and another 3,000 not directly employed by BHS are also at risk.
