A number of national newspapers have reported that Marks and Spencer is to close dozens of high street stores.
We have contacted Marks and Spencer and they have refused to comment on the reports.
A spokesperson for Marks and Spencer said: “We have refused to comment on any of the reports as we do not comment on rumour and speculation.
“We may have more information next week when we release our strategic update. Until then, we refuse to comment.”
Marks and Spencer has a number of high street stores located around Sussex.
We will update our readers when we have more information.
