M&S plans to close THESE stores

One of our high-street favourites M&S have announced they will be shutting down 16 of their UK stores very soon, starting with the shutting down of six in April. check below to see if your local M&S is set to close too. 

In April, the Birkenhead, Bournemouth, Durham, Fforestfach in Pembrookeshire, Putney in London and Redditch are also due to close. All of these stores are said to be Marks and Spencer's lowest performing in terms of sales. 

There are a further six stores also due to close after this including Stockport, Denton, Andover, Basildon, Bridlington, Falmouth, Fareham, and Keighley, West Yorkshire. 

M&S store

Many of the stores set to close have remained on the high-street of their local area for over 80-years  and we imagine many customers and employees will be very sad to see them go. M&S will be focussing more on their more successful areas such as food. However, despite its success, plans to open 200 more simply food stores has been scaled back to 36 over the next six months.
