A BRANCH of a popular high-street clothing retailer in Taunton is set to close its doors for good after only arriving in the town less than six years ago.

Jack Wills on Fore Street first set up shop in Taunton in 2017, but as of today, closing down signs can be seen in the store's windows, with a sale of 20% off all items now in effect.

The retailer was bought out of administration for just under £13 million by Frasers Group in August 2022, but 31 branches of the Devon-founded clothing brand have since been closed down.

A spokesperson for Frasers Group previously said: “The group has been working closely with landlords since acquiring Jack Wills to save as many stores and livelihoods as possible.

"Now faced by unprecedented uncertainty in the retail environment, these closures are inevitable, unless landlords are willing to come forward quickly and finally have meaningful discussions."

Staff at the Taunton store were unable to comment on the matter.

Frasers Group and Jack Wills have both been contacted for comment and to obtain an official closing date for the Taunton branch.
