Landmark Marks & Spencer store to be demolished amid UK branch closures

The iconic M&S store on one of the world’s busiest high streets is set to be demolished, with the retailer hoping to replace the near 100-year-old Edwardian store with a 10-storey building.

The revamp will be complete with offices and a gym above a smaller shop.

It will also boast a new modern pedestrian arcade, a far cry from the current art deco layout.

But this decision has not come without backlash.

An expert warned that the scheme contradicted new City Hall policies requiring the retention and retro-fitting of old buildings to be prioritised.

Marks & Spencer recently announced it will close it’s store in Glasgow this month.

The branch is set to shut at the end of this month, on April 30.

More than 100 Marks & Spencer stores were closed in 2021.
