DORCHESTER’S Wellchester store is to close its doors.

A closing down sale has been launched at the South Street store, which opened as Wellworths three years ago after the collapse of Woolworths and was later forced to change its name.

Store manager Claire Robertson left Wellchester last month to set up her own consultancy business advising other retailers.

The store is expected to close some time in August.
