Fashion retailer H&M confirmed last week that it is to close its branch at Teesside Retail Park in June due to a reported change in customer behaviour.

It follows the closure of the chain’s stores in Middlesbrough’s Cleveland Centre last summer and in Stockton.

H&M said: “We have no announcements to make regarding our H&M store in Middleton Grange shopping centre in Hartlepool.

"This store remains incredibly important to us and our loyal customers there.”

It sells men’s, women’s and children’s clothing.

Globally, H&M reported a sudden slowdown in sales earlier this year after it halted operations in Russia due to the invasion of Ukraine.
