Furniture retailer Multiyork is closing its Chichester store.

It is unclear when the East Street store will shut, staff there said.

Multiyork went into administration in November, putting a reported 547 jobs under threat across its 50 stores nationwide.

The company is owned by the Wade family, which also owns Feather & Black, which also entered administration last month.

Feather & Black’s head office and warehouse is in Chichester and the future of its reported 123 staff there is uncertain.

Duff & Phelps, administrator for both, has been contacted for comment.
