Huge discounts at Laura Ashley closing down sale in Canterbury, Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells and other Kent stores

Shoppers can bag a bargain as Laura Ashley's closing down sale continues at stores across the county.

Discounts of up to 70% are on offer as the iconic chain prepares to shut up shop in Broadstairs, Bromley, Canterbury, Maidstone, Orpington, Sevenoaks, Tenterden and Tunbridge Wells.

All fabric and wallpaper is now 70% off, with all womenswear and fashion accessories subject to a 60% discount.

A spokesman for the firm said: "There are some amazing bargains to be found in-store, especially with these new discounts.

"Popular items are selling fast and customers are advised to take advantage of these discounts while stock lasts."

Bargain hunters were seen waiting in line outside the Maidstone branch in Fremlin Walk last month when the company launched what it described as an "extensive" post-lockdown sale.

The reopened stores were designated as "Covid secure" and follow a "strict policy of social distancing" limiting the number of shoppers allowed in-store.

The fashion chain, which launched in the 1950s, says once the stores close for good the brand will remain available online and through other retailers across the country.

No date has been set for the final closure of the brick-and-mortar stores.
