A MAJOR retailer has no plans to leave Weston's High Street, it has 
confirmed.

The Mercury reported earlier this month how Marks & Spencer was 
considering opening a Simply Food store in an empty unit at Flowerdown Retail Park.

The chain is currently located in the High Street and Sovereign Shopping Centre - and has 
reaffirmed it plans to stay.

A spokesman for the retailer said: “We have no plans to leave the High Street in Weston.

“We are looking at 
opening a Simply Food store in the area and hope to provide further information in the near future.”

Flowerdown Retail Park, off Aisecome Way, is 
currently home to, among others, a Frankie and Benny’s restaurant, Costa coffee shop, B&Q, Aldi and large Sports Direct outlet.
