Falkirk’s New Look store to remain open

High Street fashion retailer New Look is set to close 60 stores – but Falkirk is set to escape the axe.

The Howgate Centre store has avoided the hit list.

The closures are part of a rescue package to avoid the business going into administration.

The closures will result in the loss of almost 1000 jobs across the UK.

Among the Scottish shops closing are ones in Aberdeen, Dundee, Ocean terminal in Edinburgh, and Glasgow’s Buchanan Street.

But New Look’s store in Falkirk has been spared and will continue to operate.

The cull still needs the approval of creditors.
