Marks & Spencer have today announced that its Stone Foodhall will open at 10 am on the 25th July 2018
The new foodhall will be located on the edge of Stone’s town centre, at Westbridge Park.
As a foodhall, the store will offer thousands of food products including dinner favourites such as M&S’s Detroit Pizzas and M&S’s Best Ever Burgers. There will also be new seasonal innovations, allowing customers the opportunity to try something new with friends and family, such as this summer’s BBQ Spatchies with a Bramley Apple Glaze.
As well as the essentials such as milk, eggs, cheese, salad and bread, there’ll also be a focus on deals every week such as the M&S £3.50 Meal Deal – perfect for lunch on the go as well as the ever popular Dine In for Two for £10 with a bottle of wine and the new £10 dinner deals.
Away from the food side M&S Stone 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 by 10pm the night before on M&S.com and the store will also offer hassle-free returns.
With 90 car parking spaces, the store is ideal for convenient Clothing & Home collection.
The new store will be staffed by 60 M&S employees who have all been extensively trained in recent weeks. Staff will be on hand to help customers find whatever they need through the use of Honeywell’s – digital devices that enable them to quickly look up if products are in stock. The devices can also be used to help customers loads their Sparks offers onto their Sparks card.
The new M&S team will be providing foodie inspiration for shoppers, sharing their own M&S favourite products via their bespoke badges, in-store signage and conversations with customers.
Store Manager, Paul Cottrell and his team of 60 will be cutting the ribbon to the open the store at 10am on July 25.

“My team and I are really excited about opening in Stone and we’ll be working hard to offer outstanding service for customers. It’s exciting that the store will bring a bespoke Food offer to Stone for the first time and I can guarantee we’ll have all the everyday essentials customers need, as well as seasonal inspirational and innovation.
With Collect in Store, from dresses to duvets, busy customers will be able to easily collect and return – with next day pick up available seven days a week. 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 customers will pop down and join us.”
