Ryman, the stationer and supplier of home and office essentials, is to close its store on level two on May 11, Castle Mall confirmed today.

Castle Mall's manager, Robert Bradley, said: “The Ryman store is closing for strategic purposes in order to make way for an exciting new leisure tenant, who are taking occupation later this year.

“We are sorry to see such a great retailer go but this is part of an exciting transformation of Castle Mall which we are starting to put in place.

It is the latest store change as the mall 'evolves' with different businesses occupying some of the units. However, the centre is set to get a boost when the new bowling alley opens as well as Pure Gym. Both are being currently built.
