King Street chocolate shop to close
THORNTONS in King Street is to close, with the loss of five jobs.
The store, which opened more than 20 years ago, is to shut next month following a review of outlets by the company.
In a statement, Thorntons said: ‘Like any retailer, we are continuously reviewing our store estate to ensure we are in the locations that meet our customer needs. As a result of such a review, the decision was taken to close our store in St Helier on 3 March.
‘Currently, five staff members are employed at the store and we are looking to find them other employment opportunities where possible.
‘Thorntons has been delighted to serve our many local customers over the years and we would encourage them to shop for their favourite Thorntons products online at thorntons.co.uk.’
