Aberdeen Journals is to close its city centre retail shop on Aberdeen’s Union Street – making around 10 staff redundant.

The company, which produces the Press and Journal and Evening Express, and is owned by Dundee-based publisher DC Thomson, wants to make savings by closing the outlet which it says is “no longer financially viable”.

A DC Thomson spokeswoman said: "Internal consultations are being held with the staff members affected. We will seek to minimise redundancy by managing vacancies, staff turnover and through redeployment wherever possible.

"Our newspapers are in a stronger position than they have been for some time. The Press and Journal is the best-selling Scottish newspaper and we're in great shape as a media owner.

"In the current economic climate our Aberdeen shop was becoming increasingly less viable so we’re concentrating on what we do best."
