In amongst the bad news that is being announced by Marks and Spencer is the little glimmer of light in that the store in Wolverhampton will be staying open. Well for this round at least.
Wolverhampton shoppers will be pleased to hear this news.
The 17 stores that have been announced today as closing down are in:
- Junction One Antrim Outlet
- Luton Arndale
- Sutton Coldfield
- Weston Super Mare
The sad news is that there will also be some 1,000 Marks and Spencer staff that will lose their jobs. My sympathy is very much with those families that suddenly find that the job has gone.
Surprising for me is the fact that the Marks and Spencer store in Sutton Coldfield will be closing its doors. So for one more time Wolverhampton has seemed to have dodged the bad news.
