Menswear shop Exits the town

A MEN’S clothes store is to close its doors after 30 years of trading on Daventry’s High Street.

Exit For Men, formerly Fosters, is holding a closing down sale ahead of shutting on Christmas Eve.

The unit, and the neighbouring one housing Argos, are both earmarked for demolition to make way for the £50m Mulberry Place retail development.

Exit owner John Gaul said: “We’ve been thinking about stopping the clothes business for a while.

“Our lease runs out early next year. It was a 15-year lease, but they are only offering us short-term leases of three months or so, which isn’t long enough when we have to order stock six or more months in advance.

“So we decided it was time to call it a day.”
