M&S Foodhall coming to Leighton Buzzard's Retail Park

M&S Foodhall to come to Leighton Buzzard's Grovebury Road Retail Park

Tuesday, 16 October 2018

Central Bedfordshire Council has confirmed that a long-anticipated Marks & Spencer Foodhall will be opening in the Grovebury Road Retail Park in Leighton Buzzard.

Last year the council approved an application to amend the Section 106 agreement to allow the sale of convenience food at Grovebury Road Retail Park in Leighton Buzzard. M&S has estimated that the new Foodhall will generate between 55-60 new local jobs.

Councillor Nigel Young, Executive Member for Regeneration and Business at Central Bedfordshire Council, said: “This is great news for the residents of Leighton-Linslade. M&S is one of the UK’s most popular, ethical and well-respected stores. Having an M&S Foodhall come to Leighton-Linslade means that their loyal shoppers no longer have to travel out of the area. An M&S in Leighton Buzzard helps drive competition and creates a new premium offer for the town. 

“We are excited to hear from the developers that the Retail Park is filling up nicely, with some great household-name stores. We look forward to the Park opening in the early new year. When it is open, Grovebury Road Retail Park will provide more retail facilities and jobs for local people.” 

The other new retail tenants at Grovebury Road Retail Park will also include Pets at Home, B&M Retail, KFC, Subway, and Topps Tiles.
