A POPULAR fashion retailer is to shutdown in Southampton this week.

Topshop and Topman on Above Bar Street will be shutting down on Saturday, February 29.

Currently, there a signs up on all of the shop windows advertising 70 per cent off all items.

It is still not known why the store is closing and, as previously reported, retailer would not reveal why the Southampton branch would be closing.

A spokesperson from the group said: "Topshop and Topman Southampton store will cease trading on February 29, 2020 and we have endeavoured to offer current staff other employment options within the Arcadia Group.

"Our customers can still visit the nearby Topshop Topman Whitely Village or shop online."

In 2015, Arcadia announced that it would be pulling Dorothy Perkins, Wallis, Burton, Evans and Miss Selfridge from Westquay shopping centre, but said at the time that Topshop would remain unaffected.
