A SHOE shop in WGC will serve its last customer on Thursday.

Discount outlet Shoe Zone is set to close its Howardsgate branch leaving another hole in the town centre.

A spokesman for the store said: “In a large portfolio of stores there are a number of closures and openings every year.

“The decision to close a store is always a difficult one and is not taken lightly.

“The decision is not, in any way, a reflection on the commitment and hard work of our staff. Every effort will be made to re-deploy any personnel affected to nearby stores wherever possible.”

It is not known how many jobs will be affected.
