Marks & Spencer has announced that its new Food store at Straiton Retail Park will be open from Wednesday 2nd December, at 10am.

The new store is a relocation of the existing Foodhall and will also be home to M&S’s new Christmas range, from Star Studded Sausage Roll Stacks and turkey with all the trimmings, to Percy Pig-inspired mince pies and light up Snow Globe Gin.

“Our new Food store will offer thousands of great quality food products and customers will also be able to shop for the full Clothing & Home collections via M&S.com, using our Click & Collect service.

“We’re really looking forward to welcoming the community just in time for Christmas and, when open, our store will have measures in place to reflect the latest guidelines, to ensure everyone can shop safely and with confidence.”
