Cooplands closes nine shops across the UK

Cooplands, one of the UK’s leading chain bakeries, announced it is closing nine of its stores across the country. The company based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, is closing branches in Scarborough, Berwick Hills, Skelton and Great Ayton in North Yorkshire.

The company issued a statement explaining the move: “Following an in-depth review of the business, we are making some changes to both our retail and bakery operations, to help better position the business for long-term and sustainable growth.

This has been done to ensure that our store estate and broader business are fully aligned with our ‘modern bakery food-to-go retailer’ strategy,” The Mirror quotes.

Cooplands was founded in 1885 and is the UK’s second-largest chain bakery, after Greggs, with over 160 bakeries and 12 cafés. The business has three production sites in Scarborough, Durham, and Hull.
