The new M&S Banbury store will open its doors to customers at 10am on Thursday 29 October, bringing with it around 190 new jobs for the area. A large proportion of the positions available, including roles in section management, operations and customer services, will be filled by people living in the local community.
Spanning over 80,000 sq. ft., M&S Banbury will offer customers a wide range of choice across Fashion and Food, including access to sought-after M&S brands such as Autograph, Blueharbour and Limited Edition. There will also be a 200-seat M&S Café in which to enjoy hot and cold seasonal dishes, tempting cakes, sandwiches and an extensive selection of drinks and Fairtrade tea and coffee, not to mention an in-store Bakery with a range of speciality breads, pastries and cakes freshly baked in-store each day.
Store Manager, Anna Childs, said: “It will be fantastic to finally welcome our customers into the new store and to show them what we have been working on for the past few months.
“We’ve been inundated with applications for our new roles and are delighted to have been able to recruit such a large number of people from the surrounding area. Our new team members are already in training to ensure our customers receive the highest level of customer service on opening day and every visit after that. We hope that lots of people can join us for the launch day on Thursday 29 October to celebrate!”
M&S Banbury will provide shoppers with a food ordering service and the popular Shop Your Way service, giving customers the choice to order from the M&S catalogue in-store or online, with free next day in-store delivery and collection. Shoppers will also benefit from free parking.
