Conveniently located near international arrivals, the new 2,000 square feet store is the latest to be opened as part of an agreement between the retail giant and F&B operator SSP.
M&S Simply Food stores aim to bring quality and innovative food products to convenient travel locations.
Manchester Airport Group’s head of retail food and beverage, Jo Macey, says “An £80 million transformation of the terminal building is underway at Stansted and we’re delighted M&S Simply Food is joining the line-up of leading brands getting involved with this exciting development.
“Passengers and staff based at the airport are eagerly awaiting this arrival and we look forward to supporting SSP as they open the first ever M&S Simply Food at Stansted.”
The new store will open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and stock an extensive range of food and drink lines, along with flowers, wines, beers, spirits and chocolate.
Bob Johnson, national retail operations director of SSP UK, says: “We’re continuously looking to increase the choices available to air travellers and workers at Stansted Airport, and the M&S Simply Food concept has already become a hit in other airports across the UK.
“This is the 9th M&S Simply Food airport store under SSP’s management, and we are delighted to be continuing our long-standing relationship with them.
“I’m sure the arrival of the new M&S Simply Food store at Stansted Airport will be welcomed by both travellers and airport workers.”
