M&S Simply Food opens new store at Stansted Airport
Conveniently located near international arrivals, the new store is the latest development in the £80million transformation of the terminal building and has opened as part of an agreement between Marks & Spencer and SSP, a leading operator of food and beverage outlets in travel locations worldwide.
Marks & Spencer Simply Food stores bring M&S’s exceptional quality and innovative food products to convenient travel locations. The new store at Stansted Airport offers an extensive range of food and drink lines including products for customers on-the-go and for those passengers looking to pick up food essentials and something for the evening meal on their way home from the airport.
Bob Johnson, National Retail Operations Director of SSP UK, said: "We’re continuously looking to increase the choices available to air travellers and workers at Stansted Airport, and the M&S Simply Food concept has already become a hit in other airports across the UK. This is the ninth M&S Simply Food airport store under SSP’s management, and we are delighted to be continuing our long-standing relationship with them. I’m sure the arrival of the new M&S Simply Food store at Stansted Airport will be welcomed by both travellers and airport workers."
Manchester Airport Group’s Head of Retail Food and Beverage, Jo Macey, said: "An £80million transformation of the terminal building is underway at Stansted and we’re delighted M&S Simply Food is joining the line-up of leading brands getting involved with this exciting development and we look forward to supporting SSP as they open the first ever M&S Simply Food at Stansted."
With a great selection of flowers, wines, beers, spirits and chocolate also available, the new store is also an ideal place to collect a couple of treats on their journey. The store will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
