BOSSES at Quality Discounts stores have reassured customers in Clacton that their store will remain open.

This comes after a neighbouring Essex QD store in Thurrock plans to shut its doors on January 12.

Despite the closure, bosses at QD have confirmed the store in Clacton will not be facing the axe.

A spokesman for QD said: "There are no plans at all for the closure of the Clacton, Maldon or Halstead stores.

"In fact, QD is continuing to invest in the high street, having opened a new QD store only a few weeks ago in Rayleigh."
