Readers have shared their upset over Reading's homeware shop closing down.

Clas Ohlson has launched a 30 per cent off sale to get rid of its stock before its late-summer closure. 

A store employee confirmed the retailer would be leaving Reading at the end of August.

Clas Ohlson’s Reading store was the last-standing physical shop after all of its other outlets closed in 2018 and 2019.
