It has been confirmed that plus-size women's clothing store Evans is set to close.

The retailer told the Free Press today that its Doncaster Frenchgate shop would cease trading on June 18 this year.

A spokesman said: "We are constantly reviewing our store portfolio across the Group and leases often expire or come up for renewal.

"Where possible we endeavour to re-deploy staff affected to another local store within the Arcadia Group.

"We are always looking at how to shape our retail business, as well as increasing our brands' presence on-line by offering our customer even more choice."

The news comes on the back of announcements that Clas Ohlson and Austin Reed are to close and BHS has gone into administration.
