The new M&S Simply Food store in Colindale will be a huge asset to the local community. It’s a brand new build with a covered customer park and luxury flats above – stylish but functional. And as we’re getting everything ready, you can smell the newness and sense the excitement!

The new store will offer all our food hall favourites and have its own In-Store Bakery. So as well as buying all the food and beverages they need for later, shoppers will be able to take time out and grab a coffee, sandwich, pastry or whatever takes their fancy.

When it comes to opening a new store, Kate is an experienced hand at getting everything ship-shape. In fact, this is the fourth new M&S store Kate has been involved in. Most recently, she played a key role in our West Hampstead store, which is already proving a huge success both for the community and for M&S.

Her hopes are high for Colindale and her enthusiasm for this kind of venture undiminished. “I’ve spent a lot of time getting to know the area, getting to know the people, getting to know their shopping patterns,” she says. “Colindale is an up-and-coming area, changing all the time through all the local developments, both residential and retail.  M&S is very conscious that we are at the heart of the community and we have a very real responsibility to live up to people’s expectations and play our part in Colindale’s life. Colindale will benefit from a high-quality food retailer in the area and we will provide a valuable service to the community and an excellent customer experience.”


Delivering this kind of experience calls for all kinds of people. We’re going to need early birds who can stock the shelves before the day gets underway, people to operate the tills or give great service on the shop floor. You could also work as an In-Store Baker, prepare or serve food in the café, or take on a Store Operations role. The great thing is, since the store will be open from 6am to 9pm, we will be able to offer a variety of shifts to suit different lifestyles.
