Making a welcome comeback.

At M&S, our business is built upon strong values. We’ve been a ground breaker in bringing new fashions, delicious food and brilliant ideas to our customers. We’ve built our business on a passion for excellence and our aim is to make M&S the top multi-channel retailer people can rely on in-store and online.

That’s why we are so proud of the opening of the new M&S Foodhall in Friars Walk, Newport.

Store Manager, Sian Young, and her staff are now welcoming customers into a brand new 5,000 square feet store with an in-store bakery, offering some irresistible treats. Some of the great features of the new store location is the 350 space car park built under the new Friars Walk development. And for those customers who don’t drive, the close proximity to the bus and train stations makes access to the store very convenient.

When asked about the location of the new store Sian said:
“M&S closed the city centre store in January 2013, opening a new retail park store three miles outside the city centre the same month. The long awaited Friars Walk is a major new shopping and leisure scheme that will revitalise Newport city centre. M&S has spotted the opportunity for a Foodhall to complement the retail park store outside the city centre.

“The new store will offer some exciting new opportunities for enthusiastic people within store operations, the in-store bakery and on the salesfloor. In addition, flexible shift options will mean that employees have their pick of early morning, core day, evening, and weekend shifts depending on their lifestyle needs. With so many businesses in the area, it is expected that lunch times will be quite busy but we’re well up for the challenge.

“The Friars Walk development is a long-awaited, exciting development for Newport city centre and I am very much looking forward to being part of it.”
