A M&S store is closing for almost a month as it undergoes a transformation.

The supermarket giant shut the doors of its Bishopbriggs store at 4pm on Saturday, August 26.

It will reopen to customers on Monday, September 25.

It comes after we reported that the shop is getting a major makeover which will include extending product lines but closing its popular cafe. 

The decision was met with upset from locals who saw the cafe as a 'social hub' for the community. 

A petition was launched in a bid to save the cafe, but plans are going ahead to close it. 

Daniel Grime, store manager at M&S Bishopbriggs, said: "We were very pleased to hear about the transformation, and we can’t wait to unveil our new look to our lovely customers later this year. 

"Alongside an extended product range including more fresh fruit and veg aisles brimming with the best quality, trusted value produce grown by M&S Select Farmers and high-tech shopping options, we’re also designing a special feature wall that depicts local landmarks.

"Our Bishopbriggs makeover will deliver a bigger, better and fresher new-look food hall for shoppers and mark a significant investment for the local area.

"The way people shop is changing, and we are reshaping our store estate across Scotland to make sure we have the right design of stores in the right places.

"While these plans involve closing our in-store café, this allows us to transform the store to deliver the very best of M&S for our customers in Bishopbriggs, with a bigger range of iconic M&S  product lines than ever before."
