Marks and Spencer to close 110 stores – will your local store be closing down?
Marks and Spencer has announced its plans to close 110 of its stores – which includes 85 full stores, and 25 Simply Food outlets, according to The Mirror. It comes after the retail giant shut 35 of its stores earlier this year. Marks and Spencer chief executive Steve Rowe told the publication: “We are deep into the first phase of our transformation programme and continue to make good progress restoring the basics and fixing many of the legacy issues we face. M&S is changing faster than at any time in my career – substantial changes across the business to our processes, ranges and operations and this has constrained this year’s performance, particularly in Clothing & Home.

“However, we remain on track with our transformation and are now well on the road to making M&S special again.
“Whilst there are green shoots, we have not been consistent in our delivery in a number of areas of the business.”
It’s not currently clear as to which stores will be affected.
Express.co.uk has contacted Marks and Spencer asking for more information on this matter.
