Festive bargain-hunters in Stoke-on-Trent were left disappointed after snow closed a popular fashion store.
Shoppers found the doors to Outfit shut after making a trip to Festival Park today.
Other stores at the retail park remain open.
But a notice on Outfit’s window reads: “Due to the current weather conditions we are unable to open at this time. Sorry for any inconvenience.”
The store is home to branches of Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Wallis, Oasis and Warehouse.
The decision to close comes after heavy snow hit Stoke-on-Trent for the second day running.
The Met Office has issued another yellow weather warning for more snow and ice from 6pm this evening (December 29) to 10am tomorrow (December 30).
Residents are being told to expect:
- Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces;
- Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.
Met Office chief meteorologist Paul Gundersen said: “The snow currently affecting parts of the Midlands will die out this afternoon.
“An Atlantic frontal system looks likely to bring a mixture of rain, sleet and snow to parts of southern England and south Wales on Wednesday, but the extent of any snow is very uncertain. There is then a risk of further snow moving south across Scotland, northern England and the Midlands on Thursday.”
