Pizza Hut shuts Cen­tre West site

East Kilbride News - - NEWS - Ni­cola Findlay

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.”
