FASHION retailer Topshop has confirmed it will be closing its store in Barnsley town centre.

The Sheffield-founded clothing store, on Cheapside, will cease trading on May 9, which also has Topman upstairs and will result in 15 job losses.

A spokesman from the Arcadia Group, who owns the store, said: “We have endeavoured to offer current staff other employment options within the Arcadia Group. Our customers can still visit the nearby Sheffield Meadowhall store or shop online.”
