The manager of a major retailer closing its town centre store today (June 17) has spoken out.
Office Outlet has confirmed it is to close its doors for the last time today after months of uncertainty.
Now the assistant manager, Julie-Ann Saunders, has thanked customers for their backing.
She said: “Thank you so much to all the customers for all their support throughout the years.
“[The] last day of trading is today. We’re all very sad to be going.
“We have made really good friends here. We’re very sad to see the end of it.”
The national retailer entered administration earlier this year.
More than 1,000 jobs have been put at risk as part of the move.
The company was previously known as Staples before being bought out by restructuring specialist Hilco Capital in 2016 and rebranded.
Office Outlet has more than 90 stores across the UK and employs 1,200 members of staff.
