A POPULAR clothes shop has closed for good after it was bought by an online retailer.

Women’s clothing firm Karen Millen shut all of its stores for the final time on Monday, including its shop in Nile Street, Brighton.

The firm was bought out by online clothes company Boohoo, which announced it would close all of the retailer’s stores as it transitioned to an online-only service.

A sign on the Nile Street shop read: “This store is now closed.

“The management and staff thank you for your custom.”

Fellow women’s retailer Coast has also closed all of its physical shops after being bought out by Boohoo.

This includes its shop in East Street, Brighton and a concessions stand in Debenhams department store in Churchill Square.

Both brands have now been relaunched as online-only retailers.
