Marks and Sparks to open in Limerick
AFTER years of speculation is was confirmed this Thursday afternoon that Marks & Spencer has agreed legal terms to open its first store in Limerick.
But the sad news is that they won’t be coming until autumn 2009.
The brand-new 110,000 sq ft flagship store is subject to planning permission and will be located in the Crescent Shopping Centre.
For the past 10 years there has been speculation as to whether or not the store, famous for its food hall, would come to Limerick, with the site of the George Hotel in the city centre, one of the sites previously mentioned.
“The store will open under Marks & Spencer’s signature style with contemporary interior design, bright lighting, easy to navigate walkways and spacious fitting rooms,” a spokesman for the company told the Limerick Leader.
It will include a wide range of fashion across womenswear, menswear and childrenswear, as well as home and furniture products.
The store will also boast a food hall offering a comprehensive range of M&S food and wine, which will be complemented by an M&S CafÃ© and a Deli Bar.
Jenny Mulholland, Head of Property Planning for Ireland at Marks & Spencer said, “We’re delighted to be opening our first store in Limerick. We’ve been searching for a suitable location for some time and are really pleased to have secured such a prime spot at The Crescent.
“We know that we already have many loyal customers in the Limerick area and we can’t wait to get started on their brand-new flagship store.”
They mention that it is subject to planning permission. I presume this means that they are going to extend the cresent shopping centre to accomodate it.
