Rumours are rife in the town that the Poundstretcher store on the High Street is set to close by Christmas.
The Hawick News contacted the shop this week but a staff member refused to comment on the possible closure saying: “I can’t comment. We have not been told anything. I don’t know what’s happening.”
Asked if he was looking for another job, he added: “I can’t comment about that either. You would need to speak to someone else.”
Despite attempting to contact Poundstretcher’s head office on a number provided by the Hawick store, the Hawick News could not make contact.
