THE future of a major Winchester shop is uncertain after nationwide closures were announced.

Argos will close 75 shops across the country over the next five years, with 10 to close by the end of the financial year, but whether this will include The Brooks Centre shop is unclear.

A spokesman said: “We are committed to the national spread of Argos shops but we cannot give details on individual stores which may be affected at this time as it will depend on lease negotiations.”

Following a business review the company now aims to focus most of its trade online.
