The store is the first to open in the airport’s new terminal extension and is part of a new shopping experience at Scotland’s busiest airport, and has arrived after passenger feedback, and is conveniently located in the domestic arrivals hall and one of the first things passengers see as they arrive.
The new store will stock a range of quality and innovative products and is an ideal addition to the airport’s growing retail portfolio, and will create more than 20 new jobs, and will be open from 5am to 11pm.
Richard Townsend, head of retail and property at Edinburgh Airport, explains: “We’re constantly speaking to our passengers and we listen to what they want. A premium convenience store where you can pick up everyday essentials before and after your journey is something we’ve been planning to give our customers for a long time.
“It’s great to officially announce that M&S Simply Food will open at Edinburgh Airport from the beginning of October. Our new terminal extension is almost finished and we’re looking forward to offering our passengers an amazing airport experience.”
Bob Johnson of SSP UK, says: “We’re continuously looking to increase the choices available to air travellers and workers at the airport, and the M&S Simply Food concept has already become a hit in other airports across the UK.
“We’re all so busy that people are increasingly looking for good food which they can pick up on the move. I’m sure the arrival of the new M&S Simply Food store at Edinburgh Airport will be a welcome addition for both travellers and airport workers.”
