A furniture store will close its Worle branch just before Christmas.
Homebase, in Queensway, will shut its doors on December 20.
In August last year, Homebase announced it would be closing 42 of its stores nationwide after creditors voted in favour of a company voluntary arrangement.
Signs are displayed outside the store informing customers of its closure, with discount sales on offer.
The Royal London Mutual Insurance Society, freehold owner of part of the site, has applied for permission to split the 5,060 m2 Homebase unit into separate retail spaces.

A Homebase spokesman said: "The affected team members have been informed and have entered into a consultation period."
A further 4,000 sq.ft remains available to let, with capability of taking a mezzanine and potential to split into two 2,000 sq.ft units.
There are also plans to build a new service road allowing customers to exit only onto Queensway, replacing the existing entrance.
