A women’s fashion shop which traded in Weston-super-Mare’s Sovereign Shopping Centre for many years closed this week when its lease expired.

Plus-size clothing store Evans – which operates under Arcadia Group – closed on December 31, but the door is still open for it to run a store in Weston.

Sovereign Shopping Centre manager Nick Cooke confirmed the shopping centre is in discussions with Evans about the possibility of locating to another unit.

An Evans spokesman said: “We are constantly reviewing our store portfolio across the group, and leases continually expire or come up for renewal.

“We are always looking at how to shape our store portfolio, investing in flagship stores, and increasing our brands’ presence online.
