Opening date for new M&S store at White Rose revealed

Marks & Spencer has announced the official opening day for its brand-new Leeds White Rose store, offering local residents a sneak peek of how the new M&S Leeds White Rose store design will look when it opens on Thursday 25 May 2023.

The brand new 97,000 sq ft store opens next month at the White Rose Shopping Centre. Local shoppers are set to enjoy spacious and stylish new Clothing, Home & Beauty departments, 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 are really excited to announce that the new M&S Leeds White Rose store will open on Thursday 25 May! To mark the occasion, we’re sharing some photos of our brand-new, store design and the team and I can’t wait to welcome the local community in to visit the store next month and see it all for themselves. Whether you’re looking for a big family food shop, the latest Spring/Summer styles from our Clothing, Home & Beauty departments, or a mid-shop pit stop in our amazing new M&S Café – we’ve got you covered.”

With a generous car park 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).
