Marks & Spencer: plans for three new stores in France
The locations of the planned stores have not yet been revealed. Jan Heere notably did not comment upon the brand’s interest in a retail unit at number 144 rue de Rivoli, just opposite the Samaritaine department store – for which it would face competition from the American brand, Forever 21.
These three new stores follow on from the opening of a Marks & Spencer shop on the Champs-Elysées, in Paris’s 8th arrondissement, at the end of 2011, and the opening of two more stores in the coming months – at So Ouest (Levallois-Perret) at the end of 2012, and a flagship store at Beaugrenelle (in Paris’s 15th arrondissement) in 2013.
Marks & Spencer’s “outlets” will not be arriving in France just yet, though. Their “outlets” network, which at present only counts 50 locations in the UK, has recently been extended to the internet – but it seems that this development, however, is not a prelude to further expansion.
