With its Coppergate store closed and its new store at Vangarde Shopping Park open, Marks & Spencer completes its shop shake up in York this month.

The company plans to unveil its new look Pavement store on Thursday, May 22.

The modernisation will bring M&S’s fashion and food departments under one roof at one of the company’s oldest stores in the country.

Also the store will have an enhanced M&S bakery and an extension to the café which has views of York Minster. There will be a brand new beauty department.

Store manager, Andy Crum, said: “I am looking forward to welcoming customers to see the makeover of our York Pavement store on Thursday 22nd May.

“M&S has had a store at The Pavement for more than a century and we are delighted to be bringing some of the newest features, such as the M&S Bakery and Beauty department, for local customers to enjoy.

“We are excited to share what we have been working on for the last few months with customers and hope that they will join us to mark the completion of work at the store.”
