SCARBOROUGH’S two Clinton Cards stores will stay open amid 44 nationwide store closures by the end of May.

The firm has two branches in town - one in the Brunswick Centre and on in Westborough - employing a total of 13 people.

However, the company’s Birthdays store in Whitby is set to close.

Clinton Cards went into administration earlier this month.

In addition to the job losses within the store network, there have also been redundancies at the company’s head office in Loughton, Essex, affecting 66 employees.
