A MAJOR retailer has opened a new store in Weston this week.

Marks & Spencer has built a new Simply Food shop at Flowerdown Retail Park off Aisecombe Way in the former Comet unit.

More than 60 jobs have been created at the store, which offers almost 4,500 food and drink lines including fresh seasonal produce, a deli and ready meals.

Store manager Matt Lucas said: “We are delighted to be opening a Simply Food store at Flowerdown Retail Park, which will provide local customers with a fantastic M&S food and drink offer.

“Shoppers will be able to select their favourite M&S products from across the food hall and bakery, choosing from thousands of fresh, quality items. We look forward to welcoming customers through our doors.”
