Macdonald’s In Fossgate To Close Next Spring After 68 Years In Business


Story by Gavin Aitchison in The Press.

One of York’s oldest and best-known shops is to close after nearly 70 years in business.

Macdonalds furniture store has been in Fossgate since 1947, but it will close in the spring when owner Martyn Macdonald retires. All existing orders will be honoured.

There are plans to turn the building, which previously housed The Electric cinema and then The Scala, into a restaurant and to replace an extension and outbuildings at the back with flats.

The building opened in 1911 as York’s first purpose-built picture house.
