Store to carry on
The future of New Look’s Dumfries store has been declared safe for now.
The struggling clothing chain announced earlier this week that it was to close almost 85 outlets across the UK as part of efforts to cut costs and improve profitability.
In addition, the company also said that it was holding talks with landlords over a further 13 stores.
A New Look spokesman yesterday told the Standard: “Our Dumfries store continues to trade as usual with no current plans to close.”
