THE number of empty stores in St Helier has fallen to around four per cent, according to the town centre manager.
Richard MacKenzie said that of the 545 retail premises in St Helier, there were 19 empty shops in the town centre and an additional three in the Liberty Wharf complex.
And while 16 stores have closed down this year, the closures have been more than balanced out by 34 shop openings.
Mr MacKenzie said that a further seven outlets were due to open in the next two to three months.
