Another store to close at Gloucester Quays

A national store chain is to close its shop at Gloucester Quays shopping centre.

The ladies clothing retailer Klass, which has 150 stores nationwide, is leaving the outlet hub.

Klass is next door to Cotton Traders which is also quitting Gloucester Quays, prompting speculation that the two premises could be merged into one for a new retail business.

Peel, which owns Gloucester Quays and has made a huge investment in the city, is reported to be helping staff at the Klass store to find new work when the store closes.

Matt Bird, Gloucester Quays centre manager said: "Gloucester Quays is a thriving retail and leisure destination with significant redevelopment and improvement plans for the future, which in time will see an enhanced premium offering for our shoppers to enjoy.

"We're working with the team at Klass to find new opportunities for the staff where possible and have a number of exciting new brands in the pipeline which we look forward to revealing soon."
