Fashion retailer Fat Face has announced it will close its flagship St Helens store.

The town centre store was hailed as one of the biggest branches of the clothing outlet in the country when it opened 10 months ago.

But the company have announced it will close on Saturday with more than 20 jobs believed to be at risk.

No formal announcement has been made but a notice has instead been placed on the shop front.

The store is based in the former Burton’s building on the corner of Church Street and Bridge Street.
