M&S on the complete reopening of its clothing and household goods sections


This week, Matalan and Dunelm made the decision to reopen the stores after new government directives allowed them to do so – classifying them as “essential” retailers because of their household goods sections.

Following store openings, many buyers have asked whether M&S will reopen stores across the UK.

M&S currently operates only Foodhalls in the UK, having closed its clothing and household goods sections at the start of the lockout. Some M&S cafes are also open for take-out only.

Now, Marks and Spencer has given an update on when buyers can expect to see their clothing and household goods sections reopen.

An M&S spokesperson said Manchester Evening News: “We are working to reopen more space starting in June. We have supported the government in its orientations for a safer workplace and await more information on its redevelopment plans.

“We have been successful in social distancing in our stores for some time and will take advantage of our lessons to reopen our clothing business.

“Our 290 stores that sell both clothing and food are run by a single manager – so this means that they already have excellent working knowledge of the necessary hygiene measures, how to manage social distancing and the flow of our customers in and out of their store. “
