A Reading health food store has announced its temporary closure as improvements are made inside the stop.

Holland & Barrett, located in the Oracle, was closed to the public last week.

Discussions with the company confirmed that the Reading store would be closed to make room for a complete refurbishment and redesign.

The store front has been boarded up with signs stating that a ‘new and improved Oracle store’ would be ‘coming soon’.

The signs said: “Say hello to a better health and wellness experience”.

The store specialises in vitamins and supplements, beauty, food and sports nutrition, as well as expert advice on diet.

It has not been clarified when the store will reopen.
