Marks & Spencer has yesterday (29th July 2020) opened its newest store in Nottingham. The store opened at 9am and the 120-strong team welcomed customers, helping them get everything they need whilst enjoying the new M&S offer.

Located in Giltbrook Shopping Park, the new store is led by Store Manager, Martin Kirkpatrick, who has worked for M&S for 14 years. Now open, the M&S team will be working hard to offer the community the very best service, drawing on M&S’s 135 years of serving the British public.

To help celebrate the opening and relaunch of Sparks, M&S’s customer loyalty scheme, the team will be treating seven customers over seven days to their shopping, totally for free. One recipient will be chosen at random each day, and whatever is in your trolley will be complimentary!

Store Manager, Martin Kirkpatrick, said: “We’re delighted to open our new store in Giltbrook, Nottingham today. The last few weeks have been spent putting the finishing touches in store and making sure all our measures are in place to support customers, so they can shop with peace of mind. It’s brilliant to now be open and welcome the community – chatting with customers today it’s fantastic to see them get excited about our new summer food products, the  latest in Clothing & Home collections as well as shop for all the essentials.”

“I’d like to say a big thank you to the team, who have been amazing getting the store ready. We’re all so excited to be part of the community and can’t wait to get to know locals better in the coming weeks.”

Denise Holme was one of the first customers to step inside this morning and comments: “I live locally and I go shopping at M&S for my food at least two times a week, sometimes three! I’m actually an ex-employee of M&S, and have worked at four different stores, so I’m really thrilled M&S has come to the Giltbrook Shopping Park.” 

The very first customer into the store was Mr Pynegar, who comments: “It is a fantastic store and a really good idea to open M&S at Giltbrook Retail Park. I’ll definitely be coming to shop here regularly as there is absolutely everything here!”
