Sports Direct’s Mike Ashley bought House of Fraser out of administration for £90 million in August, vowing at the time to save 80 per cent, or 47 out of 59 stores.

The closure of the Shrewsbury store was confirmed in October after a period of uncertainty.

Telford’s House of Fraser store is to remain open.
