Cargo in Barnstaple High Street is set to close, but town centre manager is confident the shop won’t be empty for long.
Town centre manager Hannah Harrington is confident that a prime retail unit in Barnstaple won’t stay empty for long.
Cargo Home Maker is set to close its High Street shop as part of a nationwide move from shops to online sales.
But Mrs Harrington is not worried about the closure.
“We do know that other national chains are looking for bigger premises,” she said.
