THE manager of The Broadway Shopping Centre has said that a jewellery shop in the centre has only “temporarily” closed.

Boutique Goldsmiths closed its doors earlier this week, with signs posted thanking people for their custom and directing them to the White Rose Centre.

But Ian Ward, general manager at The Broadway, said the closure was only temporary. He added: “We can confirm that Goldsmiths is temporarily closed in The Broadway. We will be able to update on the situation in due course.”

This week will also see the closure of the pop up Disney Store, which opened in October 2016.

Originally Disney planned to keep the unit open for the Christmas 2016 period, but the store has stayed open for a year longer than planned. It closes on Saturday.

Mr Ward added: “We can confirm that after reaching the end of its planned timeframe in the centre, the pop-up Disney Store will no longer be trading in The Broadway from February 24.”

The centre’s Jack & Jones store is also soon to temporarily close for a re-fit.

Shortly before Christmas, Foot Locker, The Fragrance Shop and Waffle Delight became the newest additions to the shopping centre.

Later this spring The Light cinema will open in an extension to The Broadway.
