A major fashion chain is closing its Teesside Park store for good
Fashion chain Superdry has permanently closed its Teesside Park store.
Customers had asked if the popular clothing store was being refurbished, after doors closed and hoardings appeared at several stores on the same stretch. But now the chain has confirmed that it has no plans to reopen its branch in the busy shopping park.
The nearest Superdry stores are now Newcastle, Metro Center and York. House of Fraser in Middlesbrough also has a Superdry dealership.

Teesside Park owner British Land is carrying out work at several stores along the stretch, including the reconfiguration of the mezzanine floor into three consecutive units.
It comes as Primark announced the opening of a new store in the old Mothercare building, further down the same row. Units that have been granted planning permission for improvements include the former Laura Ashley store.
Signs appeared on the boards informing customers that business is business as usual at Superdrug and USC. The park’s Menkind store is also open as usual.
British Land wants to redistribute the mezzanine area of the former Laura Ashley store to other units, while adding a little more. It has yet to confirm if any new stores will move in.
Primark said it was “exploring plans” for a new store in the park and “is currently working through the planning process”.
The new store will create 140 new jobs in the region.
