Chipping Norton: We’re on our way

A little piece of M&S is coming to Chipping Norton. 7,000 square feet of it to be exact, in the shape of our latest Simply Foods store. Nestled in the heart of the Costwolds, Chipping Norton will boost our presence in the area as, right now, apart from our BP franchise in Stow-on-the-Wold, Cotswold residents have to go as far afield as Cirencester, Evesham and Bath for their M&S favourites.

Our presence in Chipping Norton will also save locals here a one-hour round trip to Banbury, Witney or Summertown Simply Food, all of which are about a 30 minute drive away. We won’t, however, be joining the other big retail brands and independents on the pretty high street. Our site will be on the east of the town, off the main A44 London road, which we’ll share with three other retailers, together with the 85 parking spaces located there.

As well as our Click and Collect service, you can look forward to freshly prepared goods, courtesy of our instore Bakery. Grace Allcock, our store manager there, is keen to welcome you and had this to say about our arrival in the town:

“Chipping Norton is an exciting location for our new M&S simply food store. It is the first of its kind in the area and has huge potential. It boasts stunning scenery and has fantastic transport links to the neighbouring towns, the surrounding community are eagerly awaiting the opening.”

All of which is great news, whether you wish to shop with us, or come and join us on the other side of the counter. We have roles available for Salesfloor Customer Assistants; Store Operations Customer Assistants and In Store Bakery Assistants, as well as in FHSO and Administration.

Whatever reason you have to visit us, you can reach us directly from the A44 and A429 via Moreton-in-Marsh. There’s a good local bus service that connects with several neighbouring towns, including Moreton, Stow-on-the-Wold and Shipston-on-Stour.

We look forward to welcoming you soon. If you are interested in working in store, we have a range of shifts available and it’s easy to apply online at http://careers.marksandspencer.com/new-store-registration
