The store currently employs nine people. The company confirmed they were in close liaison with the staff, and that a consultation was underway.

A spokesperson for The Original Factory Shop said, “It’s a great disappointment to have been served notice on this store.

"We tried really hard to come to a suitable agreement with the landlord; especially as this is a store that has been performing well and where we are proud to play an integral part in the community.”
