The Iceland store on Kirkstall Road WILL close, bosses have confirmed today.
The confirmation follows several weeks of rumours on social media – with the store closing on Saturday, 14 September.
It is unclear what will happen to the jobs at the store, with Iceland saying consultation with staff was ongoing. An Iceland spokesperson said in a statement:
“We are sorry to confirm that the Iceland store in Kirkstall Road, Leeds, will close on Saturday, 14 September, as our landlord has declined to renew our lease. We are currently in consultations with our colleagues at the store.
“We will be sad to leave Kirkstall Road and we thank our many loyal customers there for the support they have given us over the years.
“Iceland is an expanding business and we will continue to serve Leeds through four Iceland stores and two larger stores under our The Food Warehouse fascia, including one at Kirkstall Shopping Park.”
The closure comes just weeks after M&S revealed its Simply Food store at Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Park was closing due to difficult trading conditions.
