M&S extends midnight openings to manage Christmas rush

Marks & Spencer will open most stores until later this Christmas

Marks & Spencer will open most shops until midnight in the last days before Christmas to manage shoppers safely as the Covid pandemic continues.

Marks & Spencer expects December 21 to 23 to be its busiest days, as usual during the peak period, and so will trade 400 branches through to 12 midnight. Last year just 15 M&S shops opened so late.
