Another day, another piece of bad news for the British high street. Fashion retailer New Look has announced the closure of branches across the country, with seven outlets set to close for good over the coming months.
New Look has been a high street retailer since the 1960s, selling womenswear, menswear and children’s clothing. In recent years it has struggled to compete with the popularity and pricing of online outlets. Back in 2018, the chain closed down more than 100 branches nationwide.
