A sign informs shoppers that all business will now be done from their store at the intu Victoria Centre.

The chain’s parent company, Signet Group, has not explained why the store has closed, but it’s thought that a decision was made not to continue with the lease at the property.

The company did not provide details about whether any local staff’s jobs would be affected.

H.Samuel has been a much-loved jeweller for over 150 years.

A spokesman for Signet said: “We continually re-assess our portfolio of stores on a store-by-store basis, particularly when individual store leases come up for renewal.

‘This particular closure bears no reflection upon the future plans of the Signet business estate overall within the UK.

“We are sorry to be leaving Lister Gate, however we do have an H.Samuel store less than ten minutes away at 90 Victoria Centre.”
