The cycle and motoring accessories chain did not say when the closure would happen but it is understood to be taking place next month.

Melton has seen a number of ‘high street chains’ close their local branches in the last couple of years, including Argos and Clinton Cards.

A spokeswoman for Halfords told the Melton Times this afternoon (Friday): “We can confirm our Melton Mowbray Store will be permanently closing.

"We are working hard to support all of those affected and are hopeful of being able to offer those colleagues roles at alternative locations.”

No reason was given for the closure but the spokeswoman added: “We’d like to thank all our customers for their support of the Melton Mowbray Store and look forward to welcoming them at our Abbey Lane and Grantham stores located within 35 minutes drive."
