Shoppers have only three days left to buy goods at a Spalding clothes store which closes for good on Saturday.

A decision by the Arcadia group not to renew its lease on the Burton store in Market Place means another empty shop will appear in Spalding.

Phil Scarlett, president of Spalding and District Area Chamber of Commerce, said: “It’s disappointing to lose a well-known high street name but I hope the landlord actively markets the property and fills it with another retailer as soon as possible.”

Coun Howard Johnson, district council cabinet member for economic development, said: “We’re trying to encourage businesses to move here and there are plans to try and stimulate the town centre economy.”
