Marks & Spencer set to close Barrow store



Marks & Spencer are closing stores across the country and Barrow's store has been announced that it is on the proposed store closure list. 


More than 1,000 jobs at M&S are at risk as the retailer announced its latest round of store closures as part of a drastic transformation plan.

As part of an accelerated store closure programme, M&S is on track to close over 100 stores.

Thirty high street stores have closed, another 70 will shut before 2020.

M&S said it will enter a period of consultation with affected employees.

Sacha Berendji, retail, operations and 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."
