Marks and Spencer to close 60 stores

Marks and Spencer has today (November 8) announced the closure of 60 stores across the UK.


Marks and Spencer CEO Steve Rowe said: “Over the next five years we will transform our UK estate with c.60 fewer Clothing and Home stores, whilst continuing to increase the number of our Simply Food stores.

“In the future, we will have more inspiring stores in places where customers want to shop that complement our growing digital offer.

“Internationally, we propose to cease trading in ten loss making owned markets, but intend to continue to develop our presence through our strong franchise partners.

“These are tough decisions, but vital to building a future M&S that is simpler, more relevant, multi-channel and focused on delivering sustainable returns.”

We have approached Marks and Spencer to reveal which stores will be closed across the county. They have confirmed they will reveal each store as and when they are closed in this five year plan.
