B&M, Lidl and Iceland: High street store closures coming this month - Full list of affected locations

Local branches of some familiar supermarkets and retail stores are set to close down this month including B&M, Lidl and Iceland.

A number of beloved high street faves are set to close several local branches across the UK later this month. B&M, Lidl and Iceland all have stores downing shutters for good.

The B&M branches going in May are part of a series of ongoing closures across the chain. Six of its stores have already closed across the country, with the latest having shut earlier this month.

Iceland, too, has already closed many of its stores up and down the UK. A growing list of locations have shut up shop  since February.

It’s not all bad news though as although Lidl also faces a couple of closures this month, the supermarket plans to expand its roster of stores up to the 1,100 mark before the end of 2025. Last month Lidl confirmed a list of areas it's looking to open new sites across the UK.

We break down what B&M, Lidl and Iceland locations are set to close their doors this month.
