Marks & Spencer is closing another 17 stores in a move that will affect more than 1,000 employees.
The struggling high street giant is closing 100 stores as part of a restructuring plan as sales move online. It has already shut 30 branches.
Sacha Berendji, the M&S retail, operations and property director, said: “Proposing to close stores is never easy, for our colleagues, customers or the local community, but it is vital for the future of M&S.”
M&S said it will enter a period of consultation and hopes to retain as many jobs as possible.
The locations of the 17 stores announced on Tuesday are:
- Antrim Junction
- Luton Arndale
- Sutton Coldfield
