It's been confirmed that the Marks and Spencer stores in both Stockton and Darlington will close in August.
Stockton's branch will close on 11th August. The Darlington branch will also close in August but the date has yet to be released.
Including the two North East stores, M&S has today announced that 14 stores in total are proposed for closure or set to close. They say 100 stores will have shut by 2020.
The company said the closures are part of a "radically reshape" of M&S’s Clothing & Home space.
