Halfords permanently shut its branch in Clydebank last week.

The cycle and car parts retailer welcomed customers through their doors in the Clydebank branch based in Livingstone Street for the last time on Friday.

The British retailer announced last summer it would close 60 stores and garages across the UK.

This means that customers in Clydebank will now have to travel across the River Clyde to Braehead for the nearest auto parts store, or Partick for the nearest autocentre, adding up to an extra 20 minutes to their journey.

The company would not confirm if any jobs were lost with the closure or how many workers were employed in Clydebank. They said staff would be supported and offered alternative jobs at different locations.

A spokesperson for Halfords said: "As we announced last July, we were always planning to exit a small percentage of our stores and autocentres and this includes the one in Clydebank.

"We are working hard to support all of those affected and are hopeful of being able to offer those colleagues one of a wide range of new service-orientated roles at alternative locations.”
