ANOTHER store at Castlepoint is closing its doors in a ‘period of change’ for the Bournemouth shopping centre.

Hardware retailer Robert Dyas will close down and leave Castlepoint later this summer.

Plans have already been submitted to create two shops in the unit, and negotiations are underway with future operators, the centre manager has confirmed.

It is all change for Castlepoint, with two shops closing, one opening and a third moving.

Last week, it was confirmed that Clintons card shop will close on August 11.

The empty unit will then be filled by book shop Waterstones, which will be relocating from its existing space at the centre.

Meanwhile, that empty unit will soon become home to international fashion brand Mango for its first Dorset shop.

Travel company TUI will also be opening a new store at Castlepoint later this month, and TK Maxx has signed an agreement to extend its lease there.

Centre manager David Pickett said: “It’s been a busy few weeks at Castlepoint with news that Mango will soon be joining our line-up, Waterstones will be moving to a new unit - taking a new lease that keeps them here in Bournemouth longer, complete with the much enjoyed Caffè Nero in-store - and confirmation of Tui’s opening later this month.

"I can also confirm that TK Maxx has extended its lease to remain trading here, with HomeSense part and parcel.

"We will be sad to see Clintons go as part of this period of change, but can report that a number of other retailers are currently considering Castlepoint for new stores and so we are hopeful that we will have more names to share with customers soon.

“We can confirm that Robert Dyas will also be moving on later in the summer, with plans submitted to create two shops in the store’s current space and negotiations well advanced with operators keen to occupy the new units if approved.

"We hope to share more with our customers on this soon.”

The Daily Echo has contacted Robert Dyas for a comment.
