Seventeen more Marks & Spencer stores have been identified in the next wave of closures proposed by the firm.
The company is in the middle of a radical transformation plan which will see more than 100 High Street shops being closed down.
Today M&S revealed the locations of 17 stores which will close. This is on top of 38 previously announced stores and 30 of those have already closed down.
The retailer has announced the closures as it has set a target to generate one third of sales online by 2022.
The 17 stores announced on Tuesday are:
Junction One Antrim Outlet
Weston Super Mare
Sacha Berendji, property director at Marks & Spencer, said: “We’re continuing to transform M&S with pace and as part of this we are making good progress with our plans to close over 100 stores – radically reshaping our store estate to become more relevant for our customers.
“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.
“Where we have closed stores, we are continuing to see an encouraging number of customers choosing other nearby locations and shopping on M&S.com.”
The 30 stores that have closed to date are:
Andover, Basildon, Birkenhead, Bournemouth, Bridlington, Clacton, Covent Garden, Crewe (relocation), Darlington, Dover, Durham, Falkirk, Fareham, Fforestfach, Greenock (relocation), Keighley, Kettering, New Mersey Speke Shopping Park, Newmarket, Newry (relocation), Northampton, Portsmouth, Putney, Redditch, Slough, Stockport, Stockton, Walsall, Warrington, Wokingham
