Marks&Spencer Opening Ceremony

So I heard some music playing around 30 minutes ago. Looked out the balcony and observed the opening of the Marks&Spencer food court on Kalverstraat. They just put up the sign yesterday. It seemed to be a secret from what I read on intertubes. Exact address Kalverstraat 226. Right across from V and D and almost next to Kalvertoren. Yum Yum

Should be open today. I have to stay away from the pork pies ;-(

Rumour has it that they will be rolling out Simply Food stores throughour the country and also in BP service stations.

I remember reading that many Amsterdammers where terribly upset when the Kalverstraat M&S store shut down about a decade ago.

Glad to see they are coming back, albeit only a food store.

I'll be able to pick up M&S Luxury Gold teabags if my stash runs out on my next trip. Their Iced & Spiced Buns are the perfect for the munchies too!

DDavis, although they have got better lately, if you had to put up with not very good shops (I'm not allowed to say 5hit) around here you would be excited about M&S opening too.

Many of my Dutch friends are also excited at it re-opening.

Opening in The Hague next year too ! On Grote Marktstraat, opposite Media Markt.

Oh BL Henkie, money-conscious cloggies are not the M&S target market in NL (thank goodness) :-)
