The store, which is famous for its games, gadgets and gift ideas, has a notice pinned to its front window that said 'any sympathy is appreciated :)'.

It is unclear whether there will be any redundancies as a result of the closure.

In August last year, it was reported in national media the store's parent company, Tobar International, had put the brand up for sale.

Hawkin's Bazaar has been contacted for more information.
