Subway has confirmed its Ashby branch has closed - but says it is aiming to return to the town.

The Market Street made-to-order sandwich outlet closed recently in what was apparently another blow to the town centre's trade.

Three banks - Santander, HSBC and Lloyds - have either closed or are about to close.

Subway is next door to HSBC and that section of Market Street will soon look very different.

Vacant units included the former Owen Jones pharmacy and the building once occupied by Newton Fallowell estate agents before their move to Bath Street.

But the former Co-op store in Market Street is being renovated and under offer.

Now Subway says it wants to find a new premises in the town following the expiry of its lease.

Ashby Nub News contacted Subway about the closure.

A spokesman for the company said: "We can confirm that the Subway store in Ashby is closed due to lease expiry.

"We will be looking for a new store in Ashby and look forward to providing a further update for the local community when able."

Subway has more than 44,000 locations around the world - more than 2,000 i the UK - and is a recognised takeaway brand.
