M&S White Rose unveils stylish new clothing department

M&S Leeds White Rose has unveiled plans for a stylish new Clothing department design, making it the first store in the North of England to feature the retailer’s new-look store layout.

The 97,000 sq ft store, which opens on Thursday 25 May 2023, will offer local shoppers the latest collection for Spring/Summer across womenswear, kidswear and menswear – with dedicated areas for M&S customer favourites, including classic pieces and modern looks from Per Una, luxe fabrics and standout prints in the Autograph collection, effortless elegance with flattering, contemporary cuts from Jaeger and the ever-popular M&S activewear collection, Goodmove.

And shopping with M&S will be easier than ever with a team of colleagues on hand to offer support and styling advice, as well as new features like the option to skip the queues altogether and pay straight away in the store fitting rooms.

Other highlights include a bigger-than-ever M&S Footwear offer with a spacious try-on area, making it easy for customers to find the right fit and style, and a transformed M&S Beauty department home to popular brands including the Apothecary collection, with its calming range of scented bath, body care and home fragrance products.

Local shoppers are also set to enjoy a new-look, marketplace-feel M&S Foodhall and 164-seat M&S Café with an award-winning new design.

As well as creating 230 new jobs in the local area, the new-look M&S White Rose store represents a significant investment in Leeds’s local economy and follows the retailer’s recent announcement that it plans to invest c£500 million in its store rotation programme, creating over 3,400 new jobs nationwide. The new M&S Leeds White Rose store will be one of the first of twenty new M&S stores that are due to open across the country this year.

Justine Brook, Store Manager at M&S Leeds White Rose, said:

“We’re really excited to share a sneak peek of our new Clothing store design and we’re proud that M&S Leeds White Rose will be the first ever store in the North to open with this stylish new look. The team are all working hard to get the store ready for opening and we can’t wait to welcome customers through the door on Thursday 25 May and share everything we’ve been working on.”

With a generous free carparking on site, the new M&S Leeds White Rose store is the ideal location for doing the big family food shop or for those popping in on the commute home. The store is located at the White Rose Shopping Centre, Dewsbury Road, Leeds and will be open Monday–Friday 8am–9pm, Saturday 8am–8pm and on Sunday, 11am–5pm (browse from 10:30am).
