A popular department store in Moray will close its doors this month.
The Original Factory Shop in Keith will shut before Christmas after being given notice by landlords Tesco.
Earlier this year, the Original Factory Shop shut 32 stores across the UK, as well as a depot, after agreeing a company voluntary arrangement (CVA) to reduce its debt.
The Keith store employs nine staff at the former supermarket and the chain says it is currently in consultation with the team.
A spokeswoman for The Original Factory Shop said: “It’s a great disappointment to have been served notice on this store.
“We tried really hard to come to a suitable agreement with the landlord, especially as this is a store that has been performing well and where we are proud to play an integral part in the community.”
No closing date has been confirmed for the store yet but it is likely to remain open until Christmas Eve.
Tesco declined to comment on any future plans for the site.
A spokesman added: “Following the Original Factory Shop’s recent CVA we are seeking a new tenant and hope to update the local community shortly.”
