M&S to anchor South John Street at Liverpool ONE
Marks & Spencer is to become the anchor retailer at the Liverpool ONE shopping destination’s South John Street.
With the new store set to open in mid-2023, the retailer will be relocating from Church Street to create a 100,000 square foot store in a former Debenhams unit. The shop will span two floors.
Featuring Marks & Spencer’s latest retail design concept, the store will include a next generation Foodhall where there will be a café, dedicated Coffee To Go section, in-store bakery and Food to Go aisle. Meanwhile the fashion and homewares departments will showcase M&S’s own range of products, along with its collaborations and capsule collections.
Pete Dobson, regional manager, M&S, said: “We’re really excited to announce the relocation of our M&S store into the heart of the city in Liverpool ONE. The new store will offer the very best of M&S in a prime location in the city centre. Customers will be able to shop across a wide range of M&S products in our new Foodhall and clothing and home departments, in a fresh, modern store with fully integrated digital technology to support customers however they want to shop.”
The signing of M&S completes the evolution of the former Debenhams unit following the announcement that Gravity Active Entertainment is creating a new entertainment experience on the remaining upper two floors.
Alison Clegg, managing director, asset management, at Grosvenor, said: “The signing of M&S at Liverpool ONE is a great reflection of Grosvenor’s strategy of marrying the needs and wants of consumers to those of leading brands. M&S is seeking modern space that allows it to deliver an enhanced experience for consumers, who themselves are searching for ever-greater choice and value. By working closely with the M&S team, combining our consumer insight with theirs, we have created what we all believe to be a fantastic new store.”
