Which Iceland stores are closing down? | The Sun

ICELAND is popular among customers looking to shop for less, but you may want to check if your local is set to close for good.

The supermarket has announced it will be shutting some stores this year – here's a round-up of locations.

Despite the closures, Iceland still runs around 500 branches and 153 Food Warehouse stores in the UK.

Which Iceland stores are closing?

Iceland has already closed 17 branches across the UK, but there is more to come over the next month or so.

Earlier this month, the supermarket chain closed its Llanelli branch in Wales, and also its site in Fratton.

It also recently closed down its locations in the Market Shopping Centre in Crewe.
