Waitrose announces it is to close its Leek store

SUPERMARKET giant Waitrose has announced it’s to close its Leek store – just three years after moving into town.

A company spokesman said it had found trading on the Buxton Road site “challenging”, despite the efforts of everyone concerned.

The store will remain open until a new location can be found for the post office which is housed inside.

The site was previously occupied by a Co-op supermarket.
