A GLASGOW kitchenware store is set to close as part of business sale which will see 27 units close across the UK.

Steamer Trading, the speciality kitchenware retailer with 38 stores across the UK, has been sold to trade kitchenware retailer ProCook.

There are 10 underperforming stores which are not part of the sale and will close immediately. These closures unfortunately result in 79 job losses.

It is currently unknown how many jobs will be lost in the city itself, with the Glasgow site the company's only store in Scotland.

KPMG's joint administrator Steve Absolom said: “Whilst it is always pleasing to preserve a significant number of jobs, sadly a number of redundancies are to be made at the 10 closed stores.

"Over the coming days, our priority is to ensure all employees who have been affected by redundancy receive the information and guidance they need in order to claim monies owed from the Redundancy Payments Office.”
