Marks & Spencer Store Closure Announcement

Published: Tuesday, 22nd May 2018

This morning the Council received a communication from M&S indicating that the store in Kettering is one of 14 stores nationally that are potentially going to close (subject to consultation).

This is part of a programme of 100 store closures that commenced in late 2016. Whilst the Council thanks M&S for its support of Kettering town centre over the years, we are very sad at the news of the proposed closure and are subsequently having a dialogue with M&S to ensure that we understand the reason for the proposed closure and that the context of Kettering being a key part of the Government’s growth agenda (both housing and business) has been properly factored into this proposal.
