House of Fraser's flagship Oxford Street store will close as part of the decision to shutter 31 stores which was confirmed this morning.
The City of London will also lose its House of Fraser, which is currently situated on King William Street.
Some of House of Fraser's stores have been subject to staggering business rates rises. The retailer's Oxford Street store saw its rateable value, which is used to calculate the tax, rise from £5.73m to £9m under last year's revaluation.
