Swansea City can confirm that the club’s city centre shop will be closing down on Saturday, May 25.
The Swans opened the city centre store in Union Street in October 2017 to meet the increased demand for official merchandise.
While sales were strong in its initial year of trading, a combination of factors including relegation, a reduction in city centre footfall, an increase in online sales and an overall club restructuring has prompted the decision to close the store.
The main club shop at the Liberty Stadium will remain open as normal.”
SSMC issued the claim in April 2017 and is seeking around £1.3 million in damages from the council and contractor Interserve Construction Ltd.
Swansea Stadium Management Company (SSMC) alleges that the £27 million stadium has defects, namely corrosion to exposed steel structural elements as a result of paint delamination, and a slippery surface on the concourse and mezzanine floor.
