The high street retailer has confirmed to the Scarborough News that its shop in Newborough will close later this year.

A spokesperson for Clarks said: "At Clarks, 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 to our customers.

"After careful consideration, we have decided that our Clarks store in Newborough, Scarborough, will close later this year.

"We have a strong duty of care to our employees and we are doing everything we can to minimise the impact on our colleagues.

"We are consulting with all team members and will ensure they are fully supported as our store’s trading period comes to an end.”

The news follows the announcements that both Scarborough's branches of Pizza Hut and Pizza Express are also to shut.
