New Rochdale Riverside M&S store to open as planned as Monday 6 April

Date published: 03 April 2020

The new M&S Rochdale Riverside store will open as planned on Monday 6 April, the day after the existing Yorkshire Street store closes.

The store will open just its foodhall on the 6 April, followed by its clothing and home departments when government guidelines allow.

In line with other M&S stores, the first hour of trading on Mondays and Thursdays will be set aside for older and vulnerable customers, whilst the first day of trading on Tuesdays and Fridays will be set aside for NHS and emergency services workers.

Car parking is available at the adjoined multi-storey car park, free of charge.

Simon Layton, M&S Head of Region for Lancashire and Cumbria, said: “The team has been working extremely hard to get the store ready to ensure we can offer locals everyday essentials and a wide range of fresh produce. We will also offer clothing and home products in the store, and these departments will open when government guidelines allow. In the meantime, we are focused on making sure our customers can get everything they need in our foodhall.

“In line with other M&S stores, to support the community we will have special opening hours in place for NHS and emergency services workers, as well as special hours for the elderly and vulnerable.”

On its first day the store will open at 8.30am, but from then on, the store will be open Monday – Saturday, 8am – 6pm and Sunday, 10.30am – 4.30pm.
