AN independent Hereford fashion retailer is on the move – but is sticking with the city centre.

FIT – currently based in High Town – was set to shut up shop last July with the intention of focusing on its online store.

But last autumn the Cookmate Kitchen Shop on Widemarsh Street announced it was closing and since then, FIT owner Luke Conod has been working with Herefordshire Council to get the "right deal".

He said that while High Town is not the right thing for the company going forward, it is "delighted" to be getting a new home in the city.

The old FIT store will close on Friday while the new one is expected to open on March 28.
