This time last week The Standard was reporting on the ‘store closing’ signs which had gone up in the window of Pep&Co.

This week, the signs are gone and in their place are a number of A4 notes which state: “We are thrilled to announce that this store will no longer be closing. Please bear with us as we wait for more stock to arrive in store. Thank you.”

Pescod Square was also approached last week, but was unavailable for comment. This week, it has stated it cannot comment on the situation, saying conversations with Pep&Co are ‘ongoing’.

It has been a year of comings and goings at Pescod Square, with the Officers Club and Game both departing, but HMV (a previous tenant) and Yours arriving.
