Clothing chain store New Look has closed its Burnham-On-Sea shop this week.

The store in Burnham-On-Sea’s High Street shut for the final time on September 2nd and is now vacant, as pictured above.

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.

But in August the firm said that the store would be closing.

It 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 that New Look has closed their Burnham store – they were 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 encourage shoppers to get into our town centre and support them whenever possible.”
