Supermarket retailer Haldanes has closed its doors in Carluke for the final time – with the loss of scores of jobs.

The store, in Rankin Gait, closed last Tuesday evening after the company went into administration – taking with it 60 full and part-time jobs.

In a letter sent to store managers said that although staff would be paid for the aid in full for the period of June 9 to 14 all other outstanding wages, holiday pay and statutory notice would have to be claimed by employees from the government, a process that normally takes up to three months.

Clydesdale MSP Aileen Campbell said: “My office has spoken to the Carluke store and I’m seeking urgent clarification from the company’s Head Office about how many people will be affected and what support they will be offered.”
