Collapsed retailer Mothercare has disappeared from the high street today after decades in the business.

All 79 of the health, beauty and baby product chain's stores, including the Swindon branch in Greenbridge, have shut their doors for the last time.

The health, beauty and baby product chain saw all of its stores closed by Sunday.

Around 2,500 jobs will be lost across the country.

After 59 years in the business, Mothercare went into administration last year after struggling to compete with online shopping.

In May 2018 it secured a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) restructuring deal which it said would lead to the closure of just 50 stores and affect 800 jobs.

But after a struggle in keeping up with rent and cheaper competitors, the parent business announced in November 2019 it would file a notice to appoint administrators as it could no longer “satisfy the cash needs” to keep it afloat.

Since the start of December, Mothercare has slashed prices on products with special offers.

Customers were unable to access the company’s website but were urged to visit their nearest store for up to 80 per cent off on other selected items.
