Hereford city centre to lose two main retail stores
12:00pm Friday 7th September 2012 in Hereford City
HEREFORD city centre has suffered a double-blow as a leading high street chain and one of Hereford's most famous retail stores get set to leave the city.
Next had planned to move to the Old Livestock Market development (OLM), but with work still yet to start it is now seeking permission to open a new store in Holmer.
Next is quitting its Maylord Shopping Centre home laster this year to make way for hardware firm Wilkinson.
In its planning application to move on the site formerly used by Dunhelm, Next said it still wants to move to Hereford's former cattle market when the proposed multi-million pound retail development finally opens.
Meanwhile, Rockfield is to hold a £3m closing down sale next week after it was forced to make way for the link road, as part of the OLM development.
