The company, which is apparently the second largest in the UK sector behind Boots, said it will be shutting up the shop towards the end of this month.

A spokesperson told “We can confirm that the Portswood Road Superdrug store will be closing on Saturday 28th January. All team members have been offered positions in other stores and are being supported in finding alternative positions in the local area. We want to thank all of our customers for their support and in the meantime the closest stores to shop at are located at Above Bar and Shirley.”

Superdrug has nearly nine hundred shops across the UK and Ireland, according to its Wikipedia entry, and employs over 14,000.
