Semichem has announced that there Wester Hailes store will be one of 22 closing across the country.
The store is located in Unit 32 of Westside Plaza.
Karen Scott, head of Semichem, said:
The high street was already struggling to adapt to the pace of change in shopping habits, including out-of-town developments and the rise of internet shopping.
That change has undoubtedly been accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic – sadly, we have reached the point where it is no longer viable to keep some of our stores open.
Our priority now is to support affected colleagues at this difficult time, We are already looking for redeployment opportunities within the Scotmid group and will help all our staff both personally and professionally.
