Three Wycombe stores close but Toys R Us to open
MIXED news for High Wycombe shoppers – three town centre firms have closed their doors but Toys R Us is on its way.
Spanish tapas restaurant La Tasca and lingerie firm La Senza have shut up shop in the Eden Shopping Centre.
And independent gift shop Clairabella in White Hart Street has also closed down.
Owner Claire Carter said she will continue to trade online and its popular craft markets in the town centre will return.
But toy-selling titan Toys R Us will launch a new store in Eden alongside beauty specialist L’Occitane before Christmas.
Daniel Tomkinson, Centre Director at Eden said, “We can confirm that both La Tasca and La Senza have closed.
“Both companies have been in administration since earlier this year and were subsequently identified for closure by administrators.
“However, Eden still enjoys strong footfall, bucking the national trend and producing positive growth figures.
“And we continue to attract positive interest from stores, with Metro Bank and Krispy Kreme recently opening, and Toys R Us and L’Occitane due to open before Christmas.”
A new Sue Ryder charity store is also opening in Church Street on October 12.
Charity bosses are on the lookout for volunteers to help run the shop - as well as donations - Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
