A national Aberdeen fashion store is set to close in one of the city’s shopping centres.
Cath Kidston in Union Square will close its doors, although a final trading date is yet to be confirmed.
A sign outside the shop announcing the closure was put up over the weekend.
The sign reads: “Farewell Aberdeen. It’s time for us to go, but you can still find us in Edinburgh, Glasgow and online.”
Sue Carvell, commercial director of the firm, said: “Aberdeen is a great city and we are located in the most prestigious shopping centre, however our level of sales in this volatile market, which can still be very oil dependent, has resulted in Aberdeen being quite a marginal store in our estate due to the high property costs that the centre commands.
“Our focus as a brand is very much on tourist and travel locations going forward and we managed to negotiate an early exit from our lease with the landlord.”
