Thomas Cook is set to close the doors on one of its Wrexham stores as part of 200 High Street closures across the UK.

Going Places on Lord Street was revealed as one of the axed stores earlier today which will see the loss of four jobs in the town.

However the Thomas Cook branches in Egerton Street and Hope Street will both remain open.

The news comes after the cash strapped firm announced losses of £398 million for the year to October.

Thomas Cook was given a £200 million lifeline by its banks last month in a bid to keep the company going.

Recent revolutions in North Africa and the economic downturn are cited as the main causes of the firm’s downturn in fortunes.
