    Iceland has closed stores across the UK


    Branches across Scotland, England and Wales have already seen branches leave high streets this year.

    An Iceland spokesperson previously said: "Across Iceland and The Food Warehouse we have a portfolio of over UK 1,000 stores, and our retail estate has grown by nearly 200 stores over the last 10 years.

    "We typically open more than 20 new stores each year, creating many new jobs and contributing to the growth of local economies.

    "At the same time, we continually review the retail experience offered to our customers and have always made a small number of store closures every year, as local shopping patterns change and shop leases expire."
