M&S to launch Edinburgh Airport branch
The store is the first to open in the airport’s new terminal extension at Scotland’s busiest airport.
Edinburgh Airport says the new shop means over 20 new jobs will be created.
It is the third travel location store in Edinburgh, along with stores at Waverley and Haymarket railway stations and is part of an agreement between Marks & Spencer and SSP UK.
Richard Townsend, Head of Retail and Property at Edinburgh Airport, said: “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 said: “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.”
With a great selection of flowers, wines, beers, spirits and chocolate also available, the new store will be an ideal place to collect a couple of treats on the way home. The store will operate from 5.00am to 11.00pm daily.
