Marks & Spencer will be opening the doors to its newest Simply Food store in East Dulwich, tomorrow Thursday 15th November at 10am.

We were invited to have a look around the store as the final setup was taking place.  It looks fantastic!

Located on Grove Vale Road, the store will be led by Store Manager, James Adabie, alongside his team of 30 colleagues. The team will offer the community the very best service at M&S East Dulwich Station and have all been extensively trained in how to make every moment special for customers, drawing on M&S’s 134 years of serving the British public.

To celebrate the opening, M&S East Dulwich Station will be giving away exclusive Golden Tickets to the first 200 customers through the doors. The Golden Tickets will include offers for £5 and £25 ‘spend today’ vouchers, as well as 1 x £200 gift card and 2 x £100 gift cards.

Store Manager, James Adabie, has worked at M&S for eight years and said, “My team and I are really excited about our new store in East Dulwich. We’ll be working hard to provide outstanding service for the community and the new Simply Food store will offer all the everyday essentials, as well as seasonal inspiration and innovation. Customers will also be able to shop for M&S’s full Clothing & Home collections via M& and using our Collect in Store service. Cutting the ribbon and welcoming customers in for the first time will be a great moment for the team and I hope lots of local residents will pop down and join us.”

The new store will offer thousands of food products, ranging from dinner favourites – such as M&S’s Detroit Pizzas, great for sharing, and M&S’s Rich Steak Lasagne – through to the seasonal innovations you’d expect from the retailer who brought the avocado to the UK. Offering the opportunity to try something new with family and friends, customers visiting the store will be able to enjoy the recently unveiled Italian Collection which includes Parmesan Ravioli and Scallop, Pancetta and Pea Linguine.

As well as competitive prices on basket essentials including milk, eggs, cheese, salad and bread, there’ll be great deals to look out for in store every week.

M&S East Dulwich Station will also offer the full range of M&S Clothing & Home products via its Collect in Store service. Customers can opt for next day pick up if they order online by 10pm the night before on M& and the store will also offer hassle free returns.

For customers looking for extra inspiration whilst in store, the new M&S team will be providing foodie tips for shoppers by sharing their own M&S favourite products via bespoke badges, in-store signage and conversations with customers. In addition, through the use of new digital devices called Honeywells, colleagues will be on hand to help customers find whatever they need, quickly looking up if products are in stock. The devices can also be used to help customers load their Sparks offers onto their Sparks card.

The store will be located at 18-22 Grove Vale Road, East Dulwich, London, SE22 8EF and will be open Monday – Saturday, 7:30am – 10pm, and on Sunday, 9am – 8pm.
