The department store BHS is still closing down, no sign of the end yet. In a similar way Millets in West Street was closing down for a while then seemed to change its mind and, happily, is still there and trading.

After a protracted closing down sale Beales in the Forum has closed. There has been no announcement of a successor to this retail outlet after a ten year occupation by Beales. They were preceded by Alders who occupied this outlet from new in 2003 until 2016.
