A Paisley fashion retailer is set to return with a new store near Glasgow after going into administration.

M&Co has announced it will be opening its 'first store' in Newton Mearns on Friday, May 3.

The new store will open under the new ownership of A.K Retail Holdings - who acquired the brand in May 2023.

The shop will be located where a previous store was in the town before going into administration.

M&Co was first founded in Paisley in 1961.

The new store will feature an 'extensive range' of clothing.

Meanwhile, it promises to be an 'elevated shopping experience' - with six jobs being created in the area as well.

Following the acquisition of the company by AK Retail Holdings in 2023, the brand has undergone a 'remarkable transformation'.

Andrew Killingsworth, CEO of M&Co, said: “The opening of our Newton Mearns store embodies our commitment to both the Scottish heritage of the brand and investment of our valued customers.
