Sarah Newton concerned by plans to close M&S store in Falmouth

Commenting on the news that M&S proposes to close its store in Falmouth Sarah Newton, the MP for Truro and Falmouth, said: “I am very concerned about this news and the impact it will have on its many staff as well as the town centre.

“I have asked to meet representatives from the company as soon as possible – on Monday.

“I will ask them to reconsider the proposals and, if they go ahead with the closure, what action they will take to minimise the impact.

“From speaking to local people I know that many residents would like M&S to consider moving to another, smaller premises within the town focusing on aspect of the business such as food sales. I will be raising this possibility with the company with the aim of keeping jobs and investment in the town.”
