The ribbon has officially been cut at a Glasgow M&S store which has reopened after a 'major' investment. 

The new and improved larger Crow Road retail park store was unveiled on Tuesday, with a kilt-wearing Percy Pig and his friend Colin the Caterpillar there to welcome customers.

Percy also helped staff hand out 200 golden tickets to the first group of customers through the door, with prizes on offer ranging from a free bag of Percy Pigs to a £200 M&S voucher.

Shoppers enjoyed listening to tunes performed by the Beatson Rock and Roll Choir which was on hand to entertain while they browsed the larger store. 

The supermarket has had a major makeover featuring a bigger Food Hall designed to emulate a fresh food market, a new bakery and a dedicated wine shop featuring an award-winning selection of favourites as well as new products. 

There are also new digital Click and Collect points, more self-service tills and an expanded frozen section.

Michael Sweeney, store manager at M&S Glasgow West End, said: “Our whole team has been working really hard to deliver this fantastic larger M&S in Glasgow’s West End and it’s been great to hear from customers today how much they love all the additional space and new features like our fantastic new bakery.

"When you visit the store, you’ll find a new spacious design across our Foodhall with great additions like our new M&S Wine Shop and our digital Click & Collect service which are all designed to make shopping with us more enjoyable and more convenient than ever.”

The transformation aims to provide a significant boost in Glasgow's economy and is the latest investment from M&S in its stores.

The retail giant recently announced that it plans to invest c.£500 million in its store rotation programme, creating over 3400 new jobs nationwide.
