Marks & Spencer to open new store at Hammerson retail park
Hammerson has signed Marks & Spencer to open a new 40,000-sq ft anchor store for the Ravenhead retail park, St Helens. The full-line store will include a Foodhall and a 64-seat M&S Café.
This new signing means that Marks & Spencer, which has trading in St Helens for 90 years, will be staying in the town following the closure of the branch in the Hardshaw centre which was announced last year.
Andrew Berger-North, director of UK retail at Hammerson, said: “Ravenhead retail park offers shoppers an easy, convenient and family-friendly retail experience with dining options and plenty of easily accessible car parking spaces. We are delighted that Marks & Spencer has chosen Ravenhead to increase their presence in the town and look forward to the brand joining our varied retail line-up, including Next, Argos, Boots and Costa.”
