Bringing Meals To The Medway - Our New Strood Foodhall


We’re delighted to announce that the latest M&S Foodhall will be opening soon in Strood, on the banks of River Medway. It will be situated in the Strood Retail Park on the former B&Q site.

Great news for shoppers and great news for local people looking for a job with a major retailer – because we will be hiring for both full and part-time roles.

Strood M&S is another example of how we’re responding to customer’s changing shopping habits. Many prefer to pick up food for now or tonight, or browse online and collect in store – ‘click and collect’ – rather than rely on one big shop.

And with 8,600 sq. ft. of space, our new store will have it all. It will stock a variety of everyday essentials, popular prepared meals, delicatessen foods, beers, wines and spirits. There will be a 44-seat Café for those who want to relax and unwind with a coffee, sandwich or hot meal. It will have its own small In-store Bakery to tempt shoppers with a delicious selection of breads, pastries, cookies and cakes. Naturally there will be a click and collect desk, and there will be a card shop too – ideal if you’ve just remembered a birthday!

But all this will only be possible with a team of great people on board. We’re hiring for the foodhall itself, Café and In-store Bakery, as well as Administration and Operations. There is a variety of shifts available so it’s quite likely we’ll have something to suit your lifestyle.

The store will also be easy to get to, located just over the bridge from Rochester and close to the M2. At the moment, we expect to be able to offer 300 free car parking spaces. The store will also be less a mile from Strood railway station.

Store Manager, Ryan has been involved in the new store from the start. “I’ve spent a lot of time getting to know the town, getting to know the people, getting to know their shopping patterns. Strood is a stunning town, it’s a unique town and I’ve been overwhelmed by the sense of community. M&S is very conscious that we will be at the heart of it.”
