MATALAN is currently holding a massive closing-down sale after announcing that one of its stores will be closing for good this month.
The popular fashion retailer, which has 250 shops across the country, revealed that its clearance store in Renfrew is closing.
The retail giant is pulling the plug on its branch in Blythswood Retail Park by the end of September.
As a result, Matalan has launched a massive sale on all items – with already discounted items slashed even further.
I visited the Renfrew branch to see what fashion essentials were available at cheap prices.
And I was not disappointed – with some home essentials on sale for as little as 50p.
And there are plenty of perfect pieces for parents getting organised for the festive season.
But what I thought was one of the best finds was a dream wedding guest dress.
The store is currently selling a Floral Ruffle Midi Dress for just £8.
The Be Beau stunning gown is a beautiful mix of florals in red, blue and black with purple tones through it as well.

It also has chic ruffle detailing with puffy sleeves that are finished with the ideal amount of stretch.
And it's at a bargain price of £8 which is nearly 75 per cent off from its original price of £30.
The dress would be perfect for anyone with an upcoming wedding.
A few other dresses were also on sale with two black and gold sparkly midi dresses on offer.
One has vertical, thin gold threaded stripes with a strappy, V-neck neckline.
This is just £8 down from the original price of £27.
While the other has a ruffled scoop neckline with off-the-shoulder sleeves.
It is also black with horizontal gold threaded stripes that sparkle under the light.
It is also on sale for £10 which is down from £34.
Meanwhile, punters could grab a huge black bamboo frame mirror for just £14.
The mirror is part of the store's Ibiza trend and features a loop at the top to allow for easy hanging.
It comes in a classic round shape and is finished with a sturdy and pretty frame – making it the perfect item to spruce up your interior.
Anybody looking for a bargain will need to be quick, as the store closes for the final time on September 30.
Announcing the sad news, Matalan staff said last month: "As many of you may have now heard out Matalan Clearance store here in Renfrew will be closing down.
"Our last day will be Saturday 30th September.
"We would like to thank you all for your custom over the years and hope to see many of you in store before we close."
Shoppers were left "heartbroken" at the shock closure and rushed to social media with an outpouring of comments.
One wrote: "Such a shame to be losing this shop. We've had many great bargains over the years."
Another said: "Gutted. I’ve been visiting every couple of weeks and picked up some great stuff."
A third added: "I'm heartbroken."
Retailers have been struggling since the pandemic while shoppers are cutting back on spending due to eye-watering inflation.
