A popular Worksop sports store is closing down - yet another major retailer to quit the town centre.

Sports Direct on Bridge Place is set to shut up shop for the final time in May 2017.

The shop which sells sports clothing and equipment for the whole family, is offering reductions off their remaining stock, as well as the varying discounts already set on its sale items.

A sign inside says If an item is not already in the sale customers can take the item to the till and ask for 10 per cent to be taken off.

It is understood A total of 11 people work in the store and they have been told they will not lose their jobs within the company.

Customers are informed the nearest store is in the Bridgegate centre Retford.

The news comes after Argos in February said the company planned to close its store just yards away from Sports Direct.

Argos plans to relocate and open a store at Sainsbury’s Highgrounds, just outside of the town.

More when we have it.
