An electronics store in a town centre has closed.

Maplin Electronics in Park Place, Stevenage, closed on October 18 after the decision was taken not to renew the lease.

Mike Lucas, retail director for the company, said business was increasing at the Maplin Electronics store on the Roebuck Retail Park in Stevenage and, given the size of the town, there wasn’t a need for two stores in Stevenage.

Six employees at the Park Place store have been offered jobs elsewhere, including the remaining Stevenage shop.
