The company will open 17 new stores and expand main stores over the next two years.

This includes on closed down Debenhams sites.

M&S chief executive Steve Rowe said: “We are committed to stores and believe they can be a true source of competitive advantage.

“But they need to be the right stores, in the right location, with the right services.”

Many stores will become “food only”.

Marks & Spencer has not confirmed the stores that will close yet.

Twitter users commented on the news. One wrote: “Clothing section of Marks has been nose diving for a while now. Old fogey clothes targeted at the youth.”

“They still stock the best Christmas Turkeys and the stuffing is also up there with the very best. Keep M&S open for the Turkeys,” one said.

Another said: “Come on folks, get shopping in your local M&S again. We don’t want to lose one of our dearest British High Street institutions.”

Another wrote: “£59.99 for a pair of navy blue plimsoles and they’re wondering why they’re losing money?”
