Mothercare has confirmed it is to close its only Belfast city centre store.

The outlet on Castle Place will shut its doors for the final time on March 25. The retailer said the closure was 'part of a larger transformation plan for its business'.

“We will be emailing our customers in the local area to advise of the changes and provide details of the nearest stores, Mothercare Sprucefield and Mothercare Newtownabbey," a Mothercare spokesperson said.

"We greatly value all our customers in the area and would like to thank them for their continued loyalty and support. Whilst we regret the closure of the store, it is part of a larger transformation plan for our business.”
