Spalding's Marks & Spencer to permanently close in May
The Marks & Spencer Foodhall in Winfrey Avenue, Spalding, is to close permanently on May 1, it has been announced today.
Lee Boon, M&S Regional Manager, said: “Today we have updated colleagues in M&S Spalding that the store will close permanently on May 1. We delayed the closure last year so that the local community could access their food essentials during the national lockdowns, and we are very grateful to our colleagues for their incredible hard work during this time.
“Shopping habits are changing, so we’re reshaping our store estate so it is fit for the future and closing the Spalding store is a difficult but necessary part of these changes.
"We remain committed to our customers in the local area and will continue to serve them from marksandspencer.com and other stores in the area, including Bourne Foodhall, where customers can also pick up Clothing & Home products in store via Click & Collect.”
The store was originally earmarked for closure in April last year. It was given a reprieve to keep open during the coronavirus pandemic and after MP for South Holland and the Deepings Sir John Hayes held talks with the company.
