Therese has expressed her deep disappointment in Marks & Spencer's decision to close their Felixstowe branch in Hamilton Road and will ask them to reconsider when she meets M&S representatives in Parliament next week.
Therese said: "I was deeply disappointed by the news that Marks & Spencer plan to close their Felixstowe branch - and will work hard with the council to try and get their decision changed. While I think it is unlikely they will change their mind, particularly given this is one of their smaller stores, I will be strongly making the case when I meet representatives of M&S with local councillors next week."
Therese added: "I was in the store very recently and know just how popular it is with local residents and visitors who enjoy coming to Hamilton Road in Felixstowe to shop. Felixstowe is a town on the rise and with jobs, population and investment all increasing in the town, I'm surprised about the timing of their decision."
