Closing down signs have appeared in a gadget store in a busy shopping mall in Ashford.

The signs in the windows of Menkind in County Square say that the shop's last day will be this Thursday.

The store, which sells gadgets, models, and novelty items, appeared in the shopping centre in 2018 as a pop-up shop.

Following the success of the store it remained open beyond the original target of Christmas that year.

However, the store will close its doors for the final time this week after just over a year in Ashford.

It is the latest outlet to close in County Square in the last month, after both Bonmarche and Debenhams closed in January.

Both of those stores closed due to the brand suffering financial difficulties, but the reasons behind the Menkind shop's imminent closure are not yet clear.

Both Menkind and County Square have been contacted for comment.
