A local town centre Marks & Spencer will close on February 5.
The bad news for the branch in High Street, Kirkcaldy 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.
