A sports outlet store in Flintshire is set to close its doors for the final time at the end of the week.

The Nike factory outlet store in Broughton Shopping Park will continue selling official branded merchandise at discounted prices until shutting up shop permanently on Sunday.

Shoppers, though, will still have access to the Nike store at the Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet which is just over ten miles away from the Flintshire retail park.

However, the upcoming closure in Broughton continues the worrying trend of Nike outlet stores shutting down across the nation.

There have been closures in locations, including Enfield (North London) and West Bromwich (Birmingham) recently, and following the official closure of the Nike outlet store at Broughton Shopping Park, there will be just 40 stores of its kind left in the UK.

Nike is the latest big brand store to close at the Broughton Shopping Park in the past 12 months, after both Poundworld and Toys R Us also shut for good.

Both of the vacated stores remain empty, but Broughton Shopping Park are reassuring customers that those spaces will be filled soon.

A Broughton Shopping spokesperson said: “We have a broad variety of great retail and restaurant brands here at Broughton Shopping and are continuously reviewing this to ensure we are offering shoppers the very best experience. 

"We’ve got two big name brands coming to the centre later this year and we’re looking forward to revealing these in due course.”
