An Exeter City Centre sport shop has announced it will be closing down later this year.

Tony Pryce in Guildhall Shopping Centre is the second branch in Devon to shut this year.

The sports chain which sells school uniforms, football kits and childrenswear is set to close at the end of July, according to a member of staff.

They said: "We are closing down because of the pressures of online websites, people are shopping more online these days."

The Tony Pryce branch in Newton Abbot closed its doors in April and is set to be replaced with a new ‘posh’ restaurant.

In February 2018 , Loungers Limited submitted an application to Teignbridge Council to open a new restaurant and bar at 30 Queen Street in Newton Abbot.

In November last year the Plymouth branch also shut their doors.

There are other branches of Tony Pryce in Devon including Barnstaple, Tiverton and Exmouth which are currently still open and trading.

This year alone Exeter has seen 11 shops and restaurants announce their closures.

In 2018, Jones Bootmaker, Swarovski, Stolen from Susie, Firezza, Halfords, Choccie Bar, Caramello Gelato, Polpo, Urban Burger, Matalan and The Cook’s Shop have all closed and left the city centre.

Devon Live has approached Tony Pryce for a comment.
