In another blow to shoppers all over Australia, more stores have announced their shock closure today.
Locals have revealed that Paul’s Warehouse USA Outlet in Gregory Hills, NSW, has permanently closed its doors.
Meanwhile Perth’s Transit Clothing has gone into voluntary administration - resulting in the immediate closure of three stores today.
It’s been revealed that Transit Clothing’s Mandurah, Dunsborough and Perth DFO branches have closed immediately, and their Clarkson outlet will shut on Saturday.
The remaining Transit Clothing stores - best known for selling casual clothes, accessories and shoes - will have a massive 70% off sale, starting tomorrow.
It’s been reported that soft consumer demand, relatively high store leasing costs and falling sales revenue have lead to Transit Clothing’s store closures.
And it seems Paul’s Warehouse USA Outlet has suffered hard times also. Locals are reporting on social media that the chain store - a favourite for shoppers offering discount sporting goods - has just closed their Gregory Hills, NSW, store. The location also has a ‘permanently closed’ note on their Google address.
It follows the closure of four other Paul’s Warehouse stores three months ago. In March it was revealed that the sporting retailer had been forced to close their stores in Logan, Queensland, Thomastown, Victoria, and Gosford and Thornton in NSW.
Today’s store closures are the latest in a long line of retail casualties in 2019. Earlier this week, it was revealed that a popular Best & Less store would be closing its doors - and earlier this year it was confirmed that Big W would close 30 stores due to falling profits.
