Mothercare, the world’s leading mother and baby specialist, announced in July that 60 of its 137 stores in the UK would close by June 2019 as part of a restructuring programme and the Kirkcaldy store is one of those affected.

The Mothercare store in Edinburgh is unaffected and customers can also continue to shop online at

Customers will find significant reductions throughout Mothercare Kirkcaldy from Wednesday, with fantastic deals across all categories, including toys, gifts, clothing, pushchairs and much more.
