Forever 21 is to shut its flagship Scottish store where it employs more than 150 people.

The shop on Glasgow's Buchanan Street was opened three years ago but the Californian-based company has told staff it is closing the outlet in the city.

Retailer H&M has announced it will move into the property as it opens a new flagship store while it will retain its existing unit in nearby Buchanan Galleries to house one of its other brands.

Owners of the Buchanan Quarter building said there had been strong demand from parties interested in the 65,000sq ft space.

A spokesman for Land Securities said: "The strong demand for the space reinforces Glasgow city centre's position as the UK's top retail destination outside London.''

Forever 21 haven't commented but staff have told Capital the store will shut in mid May.
