BHS in Portsmouth to close

Have your say

BHS – including three local stores – will disappear from the high street.

Shops in Portsmouth, Fareham and Chichester will close after administrators failed to find a buyer.

The closure nationally will result in the loss of up to 11,000 jobs. Administrator Duff & Phelps announced the business will be wound down and all BHS’s 163 shops closed and sold off to other retailers.
