Clarks to close down Gainsborough store

One of two stores leaving Marshall’s Yard

Clarks has announced that it will be closing down its Gainsborough store in two weeks.

The popular shoe shop has been based in the Marshall’s Yard retail shopping centre for three years but decided not to renew the lease on their property.

As a result, the shop will close down for good on Monday, September 2.

Chic of Gainsborough, just next door to Clarks, also recently announced that it will close on August 31, leaving a large unit empty for another retailer to move in.

Matthew Eliot, the franchise owner for Clarks Gainsborough, said: “After trading in Gainsborough for the last three years, we have made the difficult decision not to renew the lease on our property.

“We continually review all of our stores to ensure that they are the right size and located in the right areas in order to provide the best possible offering and environment on the high street to its customers.

“We would like to thank all our customers who have supported us and all the colleagues we have worked with both past and present. We would also like to thank the Marshall’s Yard team for their support and input.

“Clarks will continue trading in our other nearby stores in Retford, Doncaster, and Lincoln.”
