Proposed M&S closure
You will have seen the news that Luton town centre’s M&S store is among those being proposed for closure as part of its nationwide restructure.

The Luton BID management team and directors recognise this is a challenging time and will support local M&S staff as they enter the difficult consultation period in whatever way possible. We will also continue to work closely with businesses and key partners to address any concerns about what the proposed closure means for our town centre.
