    House of Fraser's branding is familiar feature on shopping streets throughout the country

House of Fraser has confirmed that its branch in Swindon's town centre will close next month.

Shoppers spotted a sign outside the store saying it would close in December.

The store joins a roster including Debenhams, Sainsburys and the Morrisons anchor store at the Regent Circus Development.

Last September, House of Fraser announced that the store was at risk of closure, only to remain open following talks with Brunel Centre bosses.

House of Fraser was bought by Sports Direct in 2018.

A spokesperson for the firm said: “It is with regret that we announce the closure of House of Fraser, Swindon. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our staff for their hard work and dedication.

"Where possible, we are committed to finding new roles within the group for all staff.”
