This is when Topshop and Topman will shut in Doncaster as owner confirms closure
The owners of Topshop and Topman in Doncaster’s Frenchgate Centre have confirmed that the clothing stores will close later this year.
Owners Arcadia, run by businessman Sir Philip Green, have said the stores will shut their doors on March 14.
Posters announcing the store was closing went on display in the windows on Saturday and today Arcadia officially confirmed the closing dates.
A spokesman said: “The Topshop and Topman Doncaster store will cease trading on 14 March 2020 and we have endeavoured to offer current staff other employment options within the Arcadia Group.
“Our customers can still visit the nearby Outfit Rotherham, Topshop Topman Sheffield Meadowhall or shop online at Topshop.com and Topman.com.”
Arcadia has already closed a number of other Topshop and Topman stores across the country since the start of January.
The firm experienced tough trading conditions at Christmas and the firm’s store closures are the latest blow for Doncaster’s retail sector.
The stores have been a feature of Doncaster’s shopping scene for decades and are bowing out with a 70% off sale.
Topshop has around 500 shops worldwide – of which some 300 are in the UK and started as a brand extension of the department store Peter Robinson in the 1960s.
Topman was created in the UK towards the end of the 1970s to provide a new approach to menswear retailing.
Both stores in the Frenchgate Centre now share the same retail space but in previous years had been separate stores.
