Randalls of Uxbridge to close

Sir John Randall is to permanently close the Uxbridge department store in January that has borne his family name since 1891, as trading has become “unviable”.

The Uxbridge and South Ruislip MP has told The Uxbridge Gazette that he will hold a final closing down Sale in January then shut the shop located on Vine Street for good.

Staff have known about the closure for some time so some have moved to other jobs, but approximately 18 people will be made redundant as a result.

The store stocks mainly homewares and furniture but also sells menswear from brands including Barbour, Brook Taverner, Gabicci and Craghoppers.

Randall told the newspaper: “I have two other shareholders and both agree that it has become unviable.

“It’s probably a combination of things, including a lack of footfall and online sales. It will be a voluntary winding up.”

The shop will close for Christmas on December 19, with a private Sale on December 30 and 31. There will be a closing down Sale in January and the doors will finally be closed on January 31.
