A DOVERCOURT discount shop is set to close for good leading to job losses following a company ‘review’.

The Original Factory Shop on Kingsway, Dovercourt is expected to close over the next couple of months with the exact closure date still unknown.

The chain – which opened its 200th branch in November – said it will be working hard to support the staff affected by the closure and was unable to comment.

The first Original Factory Shop store opened in 1969 and the chain now employs more than 2,000 people.
