A popular fashion brand has announced plans to shut its Aberdeen store after more than 30 years.
Miss Selfridge in the St Nicholas Centre signalled the move by holding a closing-down sale.
The retailer was the first to move into the shopping centre when construction was completed in 1985.
Customers have been advised they will still be able to purchase items from the brand at Outfit in Union Square, which is owned by parent company Arcadia.
A spokeswoman for Arcadia said: “We are constantly reviewing our store portfolio across the group, investing in flagship stores, and increasing our brands’ digital
presence. In line with its normal lease expiry the Miss Selfridge store will therefore close on May 4.
“We endeavour to offer current staff other employment options within the Arcadia Group.”
Centre manager Craig Stevenson said: “We can confirm that Miss Selfridge have made the decision to close the store located in the St Nicholas mall, Bon Accord.
“We are currently developing options to fill the unit with an exciting new addition, as part of our continual plans to enhance the retail experience in the heart of the city.”
Miss Selfridge is the latest fashion brand to close its Granite City branch this year.
Luxury retailer Michael Kors will shut up shop at Union Square on Saturday. The store, which specialises in luxury accessories, footwear and clothing, has been at the unit in the shopping mall since December 2015.
And in January Cath Kidston in Union Square also announced it was to close.
Last week bosses at Bon Accord revealed a popular sandwich chain and a hair and beauty salon would be opening in the centre later this year.

Subway will be joining Pret and Di Maggio’s in the centre’s food court, while Elegance will also be the first hair and beauty salon to open in the mall.
Both firms have signed 10-year leases.
Other recent additions to the centre include Waterstones, which took over a two-storey unit late last year.
New figures have also revealed the shopping centre is outperforming the UK average with 3% higher customer footfall.
