IS NEWPORT High Street about to suffer another loss?

Rumours have it that Edinburgh Woollen Mill is about to close its doors.

The store has been displaying 'closing down, subject to landlord negotiation' signs in its windows for weeks but so far the press office has been unable to confirm an actual departure date.

The County Press has heard it may be moving to the site of Ponden Home Interiors on South Street — the two companies are part of the same group.

Ponden Home has also been displaying 'closing down' signs.

Nearby, BrightHouse is currently clearing its stock out after announcing it was closing its doors.
