Following news of the closure the store manager spoke out, thanking customers for their kind words.

The national retailer entered administration earlier this year.

More than 1,000 jobs have been put at risk as part of the move.

The company was previously known as Staples before being bought out by restructuring specialist Hilco Capital in 2016 and rebranded.

Office Outlet has more than 90 stores across the UK and employs 1,200 members of staff.
