Concerns have been raised over the future of dozens of jobs at New Look's flagship store in Belfast.

The retailer has erected posters at its premises on Donegall Place to tell customers it's "moving out" on the 15th of January.

A representative from the company told Q Radio, "I can confirm we are closing this store with no current confirmed plans to relocate".

New Look has a number of other stores in the city, including in Castlecourt, the Abbey Centre, and Cityside Retail and Leisure Park.


It's understood Primark will move into the Fountain House premises after its flagship store in Belfast was destroyed in a major fire in August.
