The popular Harvard Mills discount store is set to close its doors ‘in the next few months’ – as work on a multi-million pound residential development
The store has been based on the former Kirkstall District Centre site for the past 14 years.
Developers Artisan received permission to build 183 flats and 80 ‘townhouses’ at its new Kirkstall Place development back in March. Plans also include demolishing several buildings on the site, including Harvard Mills.
Posting the closure news on their Facebook page, Harvard Mills said:
“It’s with a very heavy heart that we must sadly let you know that, due to the redevelopment of the site, Harvard Mills will soon be closing down. We don’t have an exact closing date as yet but it is very likely to be within the next few months.
“We are so very grateful to all of our loyal customers for your support over the last 14 years that we have been trading here.
“As you know, we already offer the lowest, bargain prices across thousands of items, so please now take your chance to come in and stock up on even bigger bargains from us while you still have the chance.”
The Kirkstall Place development will comprise 32 one-bed and 151 two-bed apartments.
The 80 townhouses would be a mix of two, three and four-bed units. Work is due to take three years to complete.
