A removal lorry was in York city centre this morning (Monday) to empty a shop that closed this weekend.
As YorkMix revealed last February, Bonmarché on Goodramgate announced its closing down sale in February.
The clothing store’s final day of trading was on Saturday.
Today the shop was being emptied out. The last remaining stock was being loaded into a Bonmarché lorry.
Bonmarché has survived a previous closing down sale. Different banners went up across its windows back in October 2019.
It came after the fashion chain fell into administration that month. Although it managed to partially recover, Bonmarché was placed back in administration less than two years later.
The retailer was saved when Purepay Retail bought it out of administration. Purepay bought all the stock, and agreed to operate 72 stores under licence, saving hundreds of jobs. Even then, doubts remained about the future of the other 149 Bonmarche shops.
The York closure will leave a big empty unit on Goodramgate, which is otherwise fairly fully occupied.
