M&S opened the doors of its new Broadstone Foodhall today, welcoming customers and bringing the very best of M&S food and drink to the town.
Store Manager, Ray Taylor, gathered with his team of 50 colleagues at 10am to mark the opening with a ribbon cut, joined by an audience of excited local residents. The ribbon was cut by long standing M&S member of staff Lisa Morgan, who has been with the company for 34 years.
Ray commented: “Today’s launch has been a great success and a brilliant opportunity for us to meet the local community. There’s been a lot of excitement around the opening so it was fantastic to finally invite customers into our new store and show them what we have been working on! Our customers are at the heart of everything we do at M&S, so we’re looking forward to delivering exceptional service for the residents of Broadstone.”
Many members of the local community were present and excited for the launch and were gifted a glass or fizz or orange juice, as well as a ‘bag for life’ as they entered the store. It was a pleasure to see so many locals so pleased to have the store open in their area. Joy Walker, one of the first customers in the new store, commented: “I’ve lived in Broadstone for 63 years, so I’ve seen a lot of change in the area and it’s lovely to have M&S come to our town, it will make a huge difference.”
M&S Broadstone Foodhall offers thousands of quality and innovative products, from everyday essentials and delicious prepared meals, to delicatessen foods, beers, wines and spirits. The new Foodhall will also offer M&S’s Click & Collect service, giving customers the option to have their Clothing & Home orders delivered to the store next day, completely free of charge.
