The Mayor of the Royal Borough of Greenwich officially opened the new Foodhall.

Excited customers waited outside the new M&S Foodhall Woolwich on 7 December, welcoming the retailer's return to the town. The Mayor of the Royal Borough of Greenwich officially opened the store and welcomed in local residents, who were eager to be amongst the first into the new Foodhall.

Calvin Sheridan, store manager at M&S Foodhall Woolwich, said: "The opening of our new Woolwich Foodhall has been a fantastic occasion and it was a great opportunity to meet the local community. The team and I have had a chance to chat to lots of customers already and have had lovely feedback from them which is great to hear.

"We've opened our doors just in time for Christmas with the shelves stocked with festive treats, so our customers have plenty of chance to indulge over the coming weeks."

Situated on Plumstead Road and part of the Royal Arsenal Riverside development, the Foodhall has been designed to create a great shopping experience for M&S customers, with plenty of assistants on-hand throughout the store and regular tasting sessions to help shoppers pair products and find the best dishes for their occasion.

Providing jobs for local people

Leader of Royal Greenwich, Cllr Denise Hyland, said: "Woolwich town centre is undergoing an exciting period of regeneration with new interest from residents and businesses looking to relocate here and so it is wonderful to be able to welcome Marks & Spencer back to its heart.

"M&S is one of our most recognisable high street brands, and this new store will add another shopping dimension to the Woolwich Arsenal Cultural Quarter as well as provide job opportunities for local people. I am delighted that some of the staff from the old M&S Woolwich store are back working here at this fantastic new Foodhall."

With Christmas in just a matter of weeks, M&S Foodhall Woolwich has everything needed to make Christmas dining special. The Foodhall also offers the popular 'Collect in Store' service, giving customers the choice of ordering from M&, in-store or online, with the added benefit of free next day in-store delivery and collection.
