It’s not just a refit, it’s a M&S refit

The Lincoln High Street Marks & Spencer store is set for an expansion that will create 14 jobs. The work commenced on June 27 and will take 13 weeks.

The renovated supermarket will feature a new in-store bakery, an updated café and customer toilet facilities.

The 92-seat café will provide twice as much seating as is currently available, and sell a wider choice of hot and cold refreshments, including Fairtrade tea and coffee.

The café will also provide a selection of hand-made sandwiches, baguettes, pastries and cakes.

A wider range of fashions will be stocked by the store, and the Food Hall will add more products including ready meals, fresh produce, sandwiches, salads and snacks, and range of wines and champagne.

Throughout the store changes, Marks & Spencer says customer disruption will be kept to a minimum and the store will continue to trade as normal.

Nicola Lyons, Lincoln Marks & Spencer store manager, said “We are thrilled to be bringing an updated store to Lincoln and can’t wait for our shoppers to benefit from the improvements.

“There are some fantastic new features, and we hope the changes will be a big hit when they are unveiled later this year.”
