ENERGY giants SSE announced this afternoon that all 37 remaining Scottish Hydro Electric shops in Scotland are to close with the loss of 119 jobs. The store in Dunoon’s John Street (above) was unexpectedly closed today (Thursday)

.

 

 

The company has launched a consultation with staff affected by the closures.

 

 

The retail shops, which sell electrical and white goods, are predominantly sited across the north and west of Scotland.

 

 

The outlets, along with Scottish Hydro Electric's online shop, are expected to close by 15 May.

 

 

SSE said it aimed to avoid redundancies ‘wherever possible’.

 

 

SSE director of domestic retail Stephen Forbes said changing shopping habits and more customer choice meant the shops had been loss-making for a number of years.

 

 

Full details in next week’s Standard.
