Three Bath shops set to close in run-up to Christmas
Three Bath shops are preparing to close their doors for the final time.
Game Retails has confirmed it is shutting its GameStation store on Westgate Street next month, just weeks after it reopened its Game store in SouthGate.
A spokesman said: "This was a difficult decision and all the Westgate Street team have been informed. All permanent team members will be moving across to the new SouthGate Centre store and we're looking forward to carrying on delivering a great experience for Bath's community of gamers."
Also leaving Westgate Street is women's clothing chain Store Twenty-One.

Signs appeared in the shop informing customers of its closing down sale because the shop had come to the end of its lease last month. However, a spokesman for the company declined to comment on why the shop was closing.
In Oldfield Park, Shoe Zone, in Moorland Road, is due to close in the coming weeks, though an exact date has not been given. A spokesman for the company said the shop was closing because poor sales and rising costs had made it unsustainable.
The spokesman said: "In a large portfolio of stores there are a number of closures and openings every year. The decision to close a store is always a difficult one and is not taken lightly.
"The decision is not in any way a reflection on the commitment and hard work of our staff. Every effort will be made to redeploy any personnel affected to nearby stores wherever possible."
Disney has announced it will close its Union Street store in the new year.
