When Bristol M&S store in Broadmead could shut and company statement in full
The store opened in 1952 - but “shopping habits have changed”
Marks and Spencer has announced plans to close its store in Broadmead in Bristol.
The proposal is part of a transformation of the high street chain’s estate, influenced by a change in shopping habits, the company said.
The store opened in 1952, but will close in January under the company’s plan.
In a statement, John Dorrington, Marks and Spencer regional manager, said: “Shopping habits are changing, so we’re rotating our store estate to make sure we have the right stores to offer our customers a brilliant shopping experience.
“As part of this transformation, we have today announced to colleagues our proposal to close our M&S Bristol store at 78 Broadmead in January 2022.
He added: “Our priority now is to talk to our colleagues about what this announcement means for them and wherever possible, offer them alternative roles with M&S.
“We appreciate that this will be disappointing news for some, and we would like to thank all our customers who have shopped with us in the store.
“We will be working hard to keep serving them in our 17 stores across the South West including Cribbs Causeway and Longwell Green.”
