EVESHAM's Argos stores is facing an uncertain future after the retailer announced 75 of its stores would be closed or relocated over the next five years.

Home Retail Group, which own Argos, said it was too early to tell whether the store on Evesham Retail Park would be affected by the cut backs.

But the group refused to rule out the possibility of the store being shut down in the future as Argos looks to overhaul its business in a bid to revive the struggling chain.

A Home Retail Group spokeswoman said: "At the moment all we can say is that we cannot at this stage release any details of individual stores which maybe affected because it will depend on lease negotiations at the time.

"But we are committed to a national and local spread of stores."
