EK McDonalds is closing

Fast food fans may be disappointed to know one of the McDonalds takeaways in East Kilbride is closing.

The restaurant in EK Town Centre, one of three McDonalds in East Kilbride will close imminently, with staff given only 9 days notice. Jobs have been saved though and will transfer to the other two shops at the Whirlies and on Queensway.

A spokesman for McDonald’s told us: “Unfortunately our East Kilbride shopping centre restaurant will permanently close on Wednesday, June 30. This decision was not taken lightly.”

The closure of the restaurant is the latest blow for the town centre which has seen an exodus of businesses leave the area in the last 24 months.
