Morrisons has confirmed it WILL close it's store in Regent Circus in Swindon on 3rd November.

The supermarket was only opened 5 years ago - the 113 staff who work there will now either be made redundant or moved elsewhere in the business. 

A Morrisons spokesperson said: “Following a consultation process with colleagues, we have decided to close our store in Swindon Regents Circus."

"We have looked at a wide range of options to keep the store open but none gave us confidence that we could run it successfully."

" Our aim now is to reduce any job losses and, where possible, redeploy our highly valued colleagues within the business”   

When the consultation was launched, we spoke to local Councillor Stan Pajak who vowed to lead the campaign to keep the store open. 

Speaking at the time, he said closing the Morrisons would be "the death of the town centre'.
