Halfords store in Cirencester set to close

Car parts and cycle retailer Halfords has announced that its outlet in Cirencester will close permanently.

The two-storey Halfords Metro shop at 41 Cricklade Street stocked everything from Sat-Navs, in-car entertainment systems and car cleaning products to a push bikes and accessories for both adults and children.

A statement from the firm, seen by Wilts Glos Standard said:"After reviewing our stores in the local area we decided not to renew the lease at Cirencester when it expired in July 2020.

"Colleagues at the store are aware of this decision and we're currently consulting with them in order to support them through the process. While the consultation is in progress we won't be able to confirm any plans but would like to assure everyone that anyone affected will be offered the chance to stay within the business.

"We'd like to thank all our customers for their support of our Cirencester store and have three stores within 15 minutes' drive, and look forward to welcoming customers at any of those."

It is believed that the Halfords autocentre site at Love Lane Industrial estate will remain and not be affected by the closure.
