Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - Front Page -

MARKS & Spencer in Kirk­caldy town cen­tre will close on Fe­bru­ary 5.

The bad news for High Street was con­firmed as it was re­vealed the be­lea­guered chain’s new Glen­rothes Food­hall will open the fol­low­ing day.

Kirk­caldy was dealt a blow last Oc­to­ber when it was an­nounced the store, which had been a main­stay of the town cen­tre for eight decades, was be­ing axed.

A to­tal of 74 mem­bers of staff in Kirk­caldy were af­fected by the news.

When the High Street store closes early next month, the ma­jor­ity of staff will stay with Marks & Spencer.

Some will be mov­ing to nearby stores, in­clud­ing the M&S Food­hall at Fife Cen­tral Re­tail Park in Kirk­caldy.

Oth­ers will be re­de­ployed to the new Glen­rothes food out­let at The Henge.
