British retailer Marks & Spencer has announced opening of a new flagship shop in London. The retail space of almost 100 thousand square feet is located in Lakeside. Investment in the start of the new flagship totaled around £20m. Marks & Spencer unveiled the shop with an updated layout and enlarged portal entrance.
November was the top month for new shop openings for the retailer. M&S is investing more than £80m in opening nine new department stores and creating more than 2,200 new jobs in the UK.
The flagship combines a market-style grocery supermarket and an extended range of clothing, homewares, perfumes and cosmetics. The shop also features its own M&S café with 140 seats.
