Marks & Spencer today revealed the first details of its new Monks Cross store which is set to open at Vangarde Retail Park in York on Thursday 10th April, bringing 200 new jobs to the area.
The 100,000 sq ft store will be one of the biggest in the region and will offer customers in the area even more shopping options across fashion, beauty, food and homeware. The store has been built using sustainable building technologies and practices, including putting zero waste into landfill during development. It will be one of the most sustainable M&S stores yet, with eco features such as a 60,000 litre rainwater harvesting tank, a green living wall and PV solar panel installation, which is a first for a new M&S store.
The existing full-line and Simply Food stores at Monks Cross Centre will close on 9th April, the day before the new store opens.
Store Manager, Hilary Wilkinson, said: “We are thrilled to be in the final stages of unveiling our bigger and better store at Monks Cross, providing local customers with a stronger offer under one roof and a state of the art store. As part of this investment, we are increasing the amount of selling space we have in York and we can’t wait for customers to benefit from the introduction of bigger fashion ranges, a new Beauty Hall and large Food and Homeware department, with one of the biggest stores in the region now on their doorstep. We look forward to welcoming customers through our doors on 10th April.”
