A SHOP in Stroud is due to shut its doors for the final time next week. 

Clarks shoe shop - which is located in the high street - is due to close on Monday, June 3.

It comes as rival brand Shoe Zone closed on Friday, April 19.

Families in the area wanting to buy new school shoes will have to travel outside of Stroud. 

Tony Davey, chair of the Stroud Chamber of Trade and Commerce, previously said the news was "very sad" and "will leave a gap to fill in the town".

A Clarks spokesperson previously said: “We have a strong duty of care to all our employees, and we are working closely with the store teams as they go through a period of consultation. 

“We thank them all for their dedication in serving our customers over the years.

“We’d like to thank our loyal customers who have shopped with us at our store in Stroud. 

“We’ll be delighted to continue to serve them with our full range of products online and at our nearby Clarks stores in Cheltenham and Cirencester, as well as at our outlet store at the Gloucester Quays.“

The SNJ previously reported the shop was due to close at the end of May and has been told the closing date has changed.
