A new Marks & Spencer store is set to open on October 18 at Mayflower Retail Park. The store will be a smaller Marks & Spencer store at 9,000 sq ft branded as a Simply Food store.
The new store will create 60 possible job opportunities, however it will face tough competition from the 98,000 sq ft Tesco Extra also located at the retail park.
The store will replace a building which has been vacant for over a year, previously the home of MFI.
The new Marks & Spencer at Mayflower Retail Park, which features a cafe, will join the other Marks & Spencer located in Basildon town centre in a highly competitive area of opportunity.
