M&S Foodhall will begin a trio of store launches at Broughton Shopping Park next month when its new 11,000 sq ft unit opens.
The food store and cafe will open on 9 December in part of the old BHS department store, which has been subdivided into three units. A new 25,700 sq ft Primark is due to open in February 2016, and 12,900 sq ft Outfit, relocating from an existing unit, is due to open in March 2016. A new Cineworld opened in May.
There have also been works to the exterior including resurfacing and reconfiguring the car park and widening footpaths and refreshing landscaping. The park totals more than 300,000 sq ft and is owned by Hercules Unit Trust, a specialist retail fund, advised by British Land and managed by Schroders.
The new stores were designed by architects 3D Reid. The main contractor was McLaren. The park is managed by Broadgate Estates. CBRE and Savills are the letting agents.
Clare Birch, M&S Foodhall store manager, said: “We are delighted to be opening a Foodhall at Broughton Shopping Park, and I am looking forward to welcoming customers to see all we have to offer. M&S Foodhall Broughton will provide local customers with a great new shopping experience, with a wide selection of quality meat, fish and poultry as well as a 50-seat M&S Café and in-store Bakery. We hope that customers will join us on 9 December to see all of the new and exciting features that we will be bringing to the area.”
