FEARS have been raised for the future viability of a new shopping centre.

The WHT has learned Lloyds Pharmacy, in Hatfield Business Park's Comet Square, will close at the end of February - just a year after it opened.

A spokeswoman for the company said: "Unfortunately the store is not commercially viable (enough) to remain open."

And Harminder Singh, who runs nearby aesthetics dentistry, is worried more businesses in the precinct could soon follow suit.

Mr Singh, 36, told the WHT: "Along with a number of retail units we are struggling to attract people to the area.

"It is hard to find and not well signposted."
