House of Fraser is to close its store in Carlisle city centre, leaving 150 jobs under threat.
The company is closing 31 of its 59 stores, including its flagship store on London's Oxford Street, leaving 6,000 in total at risk.
The closures are part of a proposed Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA), which requires approval from creditors who will make their decision on June 22.
The chain warns it 'does not have a viable future' unless its proposals to axe the 31 stores are accepted by creditors and landlords.
