Pizza Hut shuts Centre West site
A pizza restaurant in East Kilbride town centre has shut its doors.
Pizza Hut in Centre West, a long-standing fixture in the town centre, decided against renewing its lease.
It is the latest premises to close, with the Handmade Burger Company shutting up shop in July just nine months after opening in The Hub.
Despite the latest closure, town centre management say they are set to announce new retailers taking up empty units.
A spokesman for EK, East Kilbride said: “Pizza Hut had come to the end of its lease and had notified the centre some time ago that it would be looking to move.
“Although it is disappointing to see an outlet close, it should be noted that EK, East Kilbride has a thriving restaurant and cafe scene with multiple outlets at The Hub and at other locations across the centre.
“As part of our ongoing efforts to add to the visitor experience at EK we have also been in discussions with a number of retailers for the units across from M&S and we look forward to announcing these new names over the coming weeks.”
