Six major changes to expect at M&S – from video appointments to more ways to pay04/08/2021
Earlier this week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said shops in England and Wales will be able reopen on April 12.
After the announcement, Marks and Spencer outlined its plans to welcome shoppers across its stores.
But like most things now because of coronavirus, the supermarket has made a lot of changes for the safety of customers.
In a message to shoppers, M&S confirmed there will be six changes to stores from Monday, reports Manchester Evening News.
And it's important for customers to be aware of the new rules before shopping at their local Marks and Spencer.
So what are the six changes?
Click & Collect
M&S is offering an 8pm cut off for free next day pick up at over 800 stores through its Click & Collect service.
It is also trialling new innovations like Express Collection and Digital Check-In at around 20 stores to make collecting orders easier.
In the 250 stores that sell lingerie, customers can choose from a contact-free bra fit or a virtual home appointment with an expert.
This will be done with an expert from M&S via video.
Video Powered Retail
This is available across furniture and beauty.
M&S will connect customers via video appointment with specialist colleagues at its White City branch.
It will help inform customers on purchases before visiting stores, as well as shopping from home.
