Boston’s Phones 4U store will close for good after administrators failed to find a buyer for the outlet.

The store at 5 Strait Bargate was not one of the chain’s stores sold to mobile phone firms EE and Vodafone – and it will be one of 362 to shut permanently.

A spokesman for administrators PWC said four staff in Boston had been made redundant, with two kept on to ‘support the managed closure of the store’.

Rob Hunt, joint administrator and PwC partner said: “It is with much regret that we have today made the difficult decision to close a large number of stores. It is a very sad day for the staff working at those locations and our thoughts are with them.

“We will make every effort to help the affected staff, working with the Phones 4u HR team over the coming days to support employees.”

Staff at the Phones 4U concession in Currys PC World at Trinity Street/West Street had already been saved by a deal with Dixons Carphone.
