Hoopers store: Buyer sought for Cumbria shop

Hoopers department store in Carlisle will close on Saturday Hoopers closed in August with the loss of 83 jobs

A buyer is being sought for one of Cumbria's best-known independent department stores.

Hoopers in Carlisle closed in August, with the loss of 83 jobs.

For a time, it was hoped the premises on Castle Street would be taken over by Edinburgh Woollen Mills but the deal fell through.

It recently partially reopened as a designer outlet, employing 30 staff, but has now been put up for sale, with an asking price of £2m.
