International jewellery brand Thomas Sabo has confirmed to LeicestershireLive that its store in the Highcross shopping centre has closed permanently.
According to a spokesperson for the brand, the store, on the upper level of the shopping centre, closed its doors for the final time at the end of March.
However, the decision to permanently close the Leicester branch was not related to the coronavirus pandemic.

The spokesperson said: “This was a planned closure in line with the regular optimization of their store portfolio and business structure in the UK – focusing on own retail, selected partners and online presence.”
The jewellery brand, which is well known for its charm collection, was launched in 1984 in Germany by entrepreneur Thomas Sabo.
The company describes itself as “one of the globally-leading jewellery, watches and beauty companies, designing, selling and distributing lifestyle products for women and men”.
As well as charms, items sold by Thomas Sabo include bracelets, rings and necklaces, plus watches and sunglasses.
The Leicester branch of Thomas Sabo is one of a number of Highcross outlets to have permanently closed.
Others include shirt shop TM Lewin – which announced in June that it was closing all of its stores after going into administration.
Carluccio’s, Café Rouge and Coast to Coast are among the Highcross restaurants to have closed permanently over recent months.
