Marks & Spencer is to open its first store in Egypt within the next year.
The department store chain will open a shop in the Egyptian capital Cairo in Dandy Mega Mall, then a second store in Cairo Festival City in spring 2012.
Both new Marks & Spencer shops will open in conjunction with the retailer’s Middle East partner Al Futtaim. The first shop will be 2,600 sq m and offer fashion, beauty and homewares. The second store will be its flagship and trade over two floors in a total of 4,400 sq m.
