M&S set for significant expansion at Leicester’s Fosse Park

9th May 2024 | Jack Oliver

Marks & Spencer has unveiled plans to significantly upsize its existing store at Fosse Park in Leicester.

The retailer will take over a neighbouring vacant unit, increasing its presence at the retail park by 11,500 sq ft to over 100,000 sq ft.

The larger format store will enable M&S to expand its offer at the scheme to include a wider range of food, clothing, homeware, and beauty.

Work has now commenced at the site, and is expected to be completed by the autumn. In the meantime, the store will continue to trade with different departments undergoing changes gradually.

Nicole Campbell, senior asset manager at scheme owner The Crown Estate, said: “The M&S Fosse Park expansion signifies both the brand’s resonance with our shoppers and highlights Fosse Park’s position as one of the nation’s most successful shopping destinations.

“The expanded M&S and new brands will only increase the appeal of Fosse Park. The M&S decision to invest in Fosse Park through this expansion speaks to the strength of the destination.”

New signings at Fosse Park in the last 12 months have included Schuh, Moss Bross, New Look, Dreams, Designer Sofas and Natuzzi.
