The Works closes at Ashford McArthur Glen Designer Outlet

By Kristina Curtis

Ashford's Designer Outlet has lost a second shop this week.

Following the news that Hamleys had closed its doors for the last time over the weekend, it has also been revealed that The Works has permanently closed too.

The stationery store, which also has a branch in County Square, also closed its doors for the final time on Saturday.

The Works has now been boarded up after the store closed down on Saturday.

As of yet, it is unclear whether the staff and stock were moved to the other store.  

Centre manager Peter Corr said: “The Works and Hamleys have both ceased trading at McArthurGlen Ashford in the past week.

“We’d like to thank both brands for their partnership and wish them every success in their future endeavours.”

However, in some more positive news for the shopping centre, it has been revealed that Lost Sheep Coffee - who currently have a stall in the food court - will be getting their own unit next month.

The signs have already been put up in the former Hamleys store for the coffee shop.

And, just a few units down in the former Crocs store, the signs for Subway have been placed in preparation for the fast food chain's move out of the food hall later this year as work on the expansion begins.

It is believed the project, which will create 500 jobs, 50 more shops or restaurants as well as 1,200 additional parking spaces, will be open in 2019.
