It’s another high profile loss for the town after a series of big name closures over the past 12 months.

Other national names to close over the past year in Kettering include Gala Bingo, Body Shop, Officers Club and the Oxfam charity shop.

The New Look unit is up for rent for more than £3,000 a month. The retailer has stores in nearby Corby and Wellingborough.
