Marks & Spencer (M&S) has announced when its Weston-super-Mare High Street store will close. The provisional date for the retailer’s closure is April 27.
M&S has had a presence in the town for more than 110 years having first opened a store in Weston in 1907.
Councillor Mike Bell said: “It is disappointing that the closure will come so soon. I wrote to the Conservative Leader of North Somerset Council last month to ask him to meet with me to discuss an urgent action plan for our town centre. I have not even had a reply, which doesn’t say much for the attention that the council leadership is giving to the plight of our town centre.”
