Dubai Mall Marks & Spencer store reopens with huge new food hall and cafe - in pictures

The British high street favourite is now selling its full range of chilled goods in Dubai’s biggest mall

Dubai’s flagship Marks & Spencer store, in The Dubai Mall, has reopened with a brand-new look.

The 3,066 square-metre store has had a contemporary makeover, with new interiors designed to optimise the customer experience.

Fans of M&S’s food hall will be pleased to hear that the revamped store now has the addition of its full chilled food range, stocking more than 2,000 more grocery goods including meat, cheese and salad in the enhanced space.

M&S’s freezer range is also now available at The Dubai Mall store, alongside classic cupboard staples and British favourites.

Shoppers looking to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diets will also be able to shop the Plant Kitchen range, which features dishes such as sweet-potato falafel and cashew nut and cannellini dip.

As well as a much larger food hall, the store features a new Marks & Spencer Cafe, offering customers both a dine-in and pick-up service. The cafe will serve classic British afternoon tea, plus a selection of cakes and baked goods, and heartier dishes including fish and chips.

Food aside, the new store offers Marks & Spencer’s clothing and accessories for men, women and children, as well as homeware.

“We are pleased to welcome shoppers to our new boutique concept store, where we have introduced fresh food to the store for the very first time. The store will also offer a wide range of popular clothing collections for the whole family,” says Nick Batey, general manager of Marks & Spencer Mena.

“We’ve been working hard to offer customers new, convenient ways to shop with Marks & Spencer, including the M&S Food app, e-catalogue service and partnerships with elGrocer, Deliveroo and, of course, on our website. It’s important that customers are able to shop our products in the way that is most convenient to them.”

In line with government guidelines, all necessary health and safety measures are in place, including regular and ongoing deep cleaning, the provision of sanitiser and gloves to all customers, social distancing measures and twice-daily body and temperature checks for staff.
