After John Lewis and Primark revealed their plans earlier this week to reopen their non-essential retail stores from 12 April (Monday), now Marks & Spencer (M&S) too is out with its plans.
The British clothing retailer plans to open its apparel and home division across all stores in England and Wales from 12 April in accordance to Government guidance.
The retailer, reportedly, added that in 250 of its stores that sell lingerie, shoppers will be able to avail the contact-free bra fitting service from one of its experts. The shoppers can also schedule a virtual appointment with M&S expert through video call.
Besides, in 50 of its best lingerie stores, the retailer will expand its ‘Pay With Me’ service. The service,which was started late last year,will help shoppers buy lingerie following bra fit appointment – without visiting a till.
The clothing retailer also said that it will offer 8 PM cut-off for free next-day pickup at more than 800 of its stores for its click-and-collect services.
Additionally, M&S is taking many other new initiatives at about 20 stores to make order collections simpler for shoppers – including digital check-ins and express collection.
The retailer is also trying to connect customers with beauty store staff and furniture specialists (through video appointments) to help inform purchases prior to visiting stores.
The fashion retailers, across the UK, seem elated as well as all set for hopefully a new beginning.
