Ann Summers is leaving The Moor.

Hoardings have gone up around the premises. The company’s website confirms that it is opening ’very soon’.The Moor is Sheffield city centre’s busiest retail area following the decline of Fargate.

A large Sports Direct is set to open in the former TJ Hughes department store near Cumberland Street in July, with a St Luke’s charity shop opposite.

The Moor was rocked by the closure of Debenhams last year. The building remains empty.
