M&S to open 60,000 sq ft store in Nottingham near year

Marks and Spencer will open a new 60,000 sq ft store at British Land’s Giltbrook Retail Park, Nottingham, in the summer of 2020.

The announcement comes less than two weeks before M&S opens a major new store in Cornwall – it’s first clothing store opening in the South West for 10 years.

Both stores are part of M&S’s store transformation plan – with the retailer closing, relocating, opening and renewing stores to offer customers the “very best experience”.

Alongside this, M&S is aiming to grow clothing online sales to a third of its total sales – supported by its network of over 1,000 stores, where 70% of online orders are already collected.

Up to 150 new and existing M&S colleagues will work at the new store in Nottingham with recruitment beginning in spring 2020.

Sacha Berendji, retail, operations and property director at Marks and Spencer, said: “Customers’ shopping habits are changing and so it’s important we change to reflect the way they want to shop – seamlessly integrating our in-store and online experiences.

“Excitingly, in Nottingham reshaping our store estate means opening a big new store next summer that can best serve our customer needs, alongside our High Street shop. Stores remain fundamental to how we serve customers and we can’t wait to open in this great location.”
