An Aberdeen branch of a fashion chain has shut after the firm collapsed into administration.
The clothing brand Coast, which has three stores in Scotland, including one in the Bon Accord Centre, will close all of its 24 shops across the UK. The closure will see 10 local jobs at risk and 300 nationally.
Coast is the latest retailer to be hit by Britain’s high street woes.
Earlier this week, Japanese street food chain YO! Sushi announced the closure of one of it’s Aberdeen restaurants which is also in the shopping centre.
Firms including New Look, Homebase and other casual dining chains have also had to slim down their store portfolios, with Patisserie Valerie the latest to announce closures.
Bon Accord Centre manager Craig Stevenson said: “We can confirm that Coast have closed the store in Bon Accord following the company appointing administrators. We continue to work with retailers offering solutions to suit the current market place, while delivering a thriving retail destination in Aberdeen.”
Staff at Coast were informed yesterday evening that PwC has been drafted in to carry out the process.
