Kirkstall’s M&S Simply Food Store will close at the end of September, the company has announced.
All 29 staff at the Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Centre store have been informed and Marks and Spencer is hoping to re-deploy most of them to stores nearby.
Rebecca Newby, M&S Head of Region for Yorkshire, said:
“We’re reshaping our store estate to respond to changing customer habits.
“As part of this we’re closing our Kirkstall Simply Food at the end of September.
“Our priority will be supporting our great team and we expect most of them to relocate to one of the 15 M&S stores within a 30-minute drive from Kirkstall, including M&S Leeds and M&S Pudsey, and our Foodhalls in Central Square and Moortown.”
Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Centre opened in October 2015, with M&S one of its original stores.
