Clothing store Blacks set to close in Eastbourne

Outdoor clothing store Blacks is due to close its Eastbourne store in March.

A spokesperson for the business, which also sells camping equipment, is set to close its doors on March 7.

The spokesperson added that much of the stock in the Eastbourne store had gone and that items were being sold at reduced prices.

The news comes after it emerged high street camera chain Jessops has gone into administration, with PricewaterhouseCoopers appointed as the administrator.

The business opened a new, bigger store in the Arndale Centre a few months ago.

Jessops was founded in Leicester in 1935. It has 192 stores in the UK and employs about 2,000 staff.
