GALLERY | Inside the new Liverpool M&S
Doors have officially opened at Marks and Spencer’s 70,000 sq ft shop off South John Street.
M&S took over half of the former Debenhams unit at Liverpool ONE in a deal last year that saw the retailer agree to relocate from its Church Street spot.
That deal was negotiated between Savills on behalf of M&S and Liverpool ONE agents Metis Real Estate Advisors and CBRE.
The Liverpool ONE M&S offers a mixture of clothing, footwear, accessories, homewares, beauty products, and groceries to customers. It boasts a coffee shop, bakery, and dedicated wine shop.
The store employs 320 staff members.
Store manager Kirsty Williams said: “The store is an exciting investment in the future of M&S in Liverpool, and I can’t wait for our customers to explore all the new features that the store has to offer.”
Liverpool ONE owner, Grosvenor, also issued its support for the new store.
Rob Deacon, senior asset manager at Grosvenor, said: “It has been fantastic working with the M&S team to help them achieve their vision of delivering a modern and enticing showcase space which provides an enhanced experience for their customers.
“To be the location of choice within Liverpool for another retail giant’s flagship store evidences the fantastic work we do for brands and operators alike.”
While M&S occupies half of the ex-Debenhams, the remaining space has been taken on by Gravity MAX. The entertainment venue opened last week.
This is not the only Debenhams M&S has moved into. The retailer is set to open at the ex-Debenhams unit at the Trafford Centre later this year.
