However, other businesses continue to find a home in the town, with big chains such as Aldi, Home Bargains and B&M opening during this year.

It has been a turbulent year for tReds, which collapsed into administration in January citing 'challenges' for the retail sector.

However, in February it was bought by New Gray Ltd, saving the Weymouth-based company's 21 stores across the UK and its online business.

tReds has been contacted for comment.
