Marks and Spencer is tipped by many to be the supermarket chain that has expressed interest in the former site of British Home Stores in the city centre.

But the shopping giant would not confirm if it was the firm behind plans to move into the Sauchiehall Street store.

We told previously how planning chiefs had approved the plans. But they would not reveal the identity of the interested party, referring to them only as a "major retailer". 

Asked if the food and clothing shop had eyes on the site, a spokeswoman for Marks and Spencer, said: "All our stores in Scotland are trading as normal and it’s been great to welcome our customers back following lock-down.

"We have no current changes to announce in Glasgow. Whenever we make changes to stores, our colleagues are always the first to know.”
