Virgin Media has announced it is to close 25 of its stores across the UK, resulting in the loss of 110 jobs.
The decision will leave just 53 existing branches in the country, although it is feared that more closures will follow as the chain continues further investment in online sales.
110 job losses
The closures could see the loss of 110 jobs, with sales and managerial positions believed to be the most at risk.
Virgin Media is to begin the roll-out of the store closures next month, with the process taking place between March and April.
A spokesman for Virgin Media said: “We are now consulting with our people and are supporting employees impacted by the proposal, including identifying opportunities to move to new roles within Virgin Media.
"Our proposal will see us retain 53 retail outlets across the UK from which we can continue to serve our customers and we’re focused on making those stores a fantastic place for our customers to engage with our sales teams and to experience first-hand our amazing products and services.
"This is happening alongside investment in our online sales and customer service channels."
