New Look announces that its Burnham-On-Sea store is closing

Clothing chain store New Look is to close its Burnham-On-Sea shop this autumn, it has announced this week.

The store in Burnham-On-Sea's High Street will sadly be closing for the final time on September 2nd.

The fashion retailer initially revealed in March that several of its stores would be closing amid 'challenging' trading conditions, but the Burnham store was safe at the time.

This week's news that the store is to close is a blow to Burnham town centre following the closure of Clarks shoe shop earlier this year and several bank branches.

A spokesman for Burnham-On-Sea Chamber of Trade said: "We are very disappointed to hear from New Look that their Burnham store will be closing this autumn - they are a high-profile chain store in the High Street and our thoughts are with the staff affected."

"Burnham still has a great range of independent shops, though, and we are pleased that the latest footfall figures show our town centre is bucking the regional trend in seeing a small increase in visitors at the start of the school summer holidays."
