The popular discount supermarket mainly sells frozen and prepared meals and vegetables.

It comes after several Iceland stores already shut this year.

A spokesperson for Iceland said: “The Trinity Street, Huddersfield store is due to close on October 28, we anticipate many of our customers will instead choose to shop at the nearby Food Warehouse on Great Northern Retail Park.

“We typically open more than 20 new stores each year, creating many new jobs and contributing to the growth of local economies.

“At the same time, we continually review the retail experience offered to our customers and have always made a small number of store closures every year, as local shopping patterns change and shop leases expire.”

The branch in Huddersfield isn’t the first Iceland store to disappear from the high street.

Its shop in Llanelli closed on September 12 while one in Birkenhead and another in Crewe will shut on September 16.

These follow a rafter of closures from earlier this year:

High energy costs and a shift to shopping online after the pandemic are also taking a toll and many high street shops have struggled to keep going.
