Master Debonair at Mackie’s Corner in Sunderland closes down

Master Debonair at Mackie’s Corner traded for the last time on Sunday.

The company, which also has outlets in York and East Boldon, made the announment on social media.

A spokesperson, writing in a Facebook post, said: “After much thought we have taken the decision close our store in Sunderland.

“It has not been an easy decision, as we have created a wonderful store within the city, with an array of independent businesses around us.

“We simply feel that now the time is right to focus on our flagship East Boldon store in the North East.

“This creates an amazing opportunity, 4,430 SqFt of unique space at the iconic Mackie’s Corner to enquire.”
