Marks & Spencer opens its latest Outlet store this week at Lowry Outlet, located in MediaCityUK, Manchester.
The new 1,394 sq m (15,000 sq ft) store opens on Thursday 18 August, stocking a range of M&S products across Womenswear & Lingerie, Menswear and Kids and offering customers between 30% and 50% discount off high street prices. It replaces the existing M&S Outlet store at Lowry Outlet.
Rob Morray, Head of Property Planning at Marks & Spencer, said: “In addition to opening new stores we’re always thinking about how we can improve our existing store estate for our customers. Our new store will ensure we continue to bring the very best of our outlet offering to Lowry Outlet”.
M&S Outlet will be Lowry Outlet’s largest store serving customers alongside Next Outlet, Clarks, Gap Outlet and many more. The new store will sit alongside the outlet’s wider offering, including restaurants, bars and cafes, an on-site Vue cinema and a newly enlarged Virgin Active Gym which adds to the leisure mix.
Adrian Wright, Peel Outlets Leasing Director, said: “We welcome Marks & Spencer’s latest UK store to Lowry Outlet, anticipating strong customer demand well ahead of the Christmas rush.
“The iconic brand of Marks and Spencer in this new store brings additional vibrancy to the centre as well as demonstrating strong occupier interest in Lowry Outlet. We continue to create a major lifestyle and leisure experience that expands the centre and, extends its appeal into fashion, whilst complemented as a growing destination for food and film.”
Jason Pullen, Managing Director of Peel Outlets, said: “Lowry Outlet is on the radar of retail and leisure/lifestyle operators thanks to both regional dominance and rising footfall. This is a centre which offers a unique customer shopping experience and the important addition of this new Marks & Spencer store will further enhance that.”
