However, at the same time, the retailer has plans to open 104 new "bigger and fresher" stores – and some could be in the same areas as those closing.

It's not just retailers closing stores – Wetherspoon and Stonegate, which owns Slug and Lettuce and Be At One, are closing a number of boozers and restaurants this year.
