The high street health and beauty retailer announced earlier this year that 300 of its stores would be shut down over a 12-month period.

Five locations have already ceased trading, with four more set to close this October.

Meanwhile, frozen supermarket chain Iceland is in its final phase of UK store closures.

According to Richard Walker, the executive chairman of Iceland Food, the string of closures this year were a part of the company’s strategy. Adding that some sites were shut down simply because “their leases expired”.

Citing changes in “local shopping patterns”, Iceland has closed 15 locations so far this year – with one to follow this October.

The Iceland store expected to close this month is the Trinity Street, Huddersfield premises, closing on October 28.

Iceland stores that have already closed this year:

  • Mill Lane, Bromsgrove
