British brand Marks & Spencer (M&S) and Al-Futtaim have opened the second standalone food store and M&S Café in the UAE. Located in the newly opened Springs Souk between The Meadows and The Springs, this opening brings M&S’s existing food catalogue to more families and foodies in Dubai.

The food store, which will stock the same range as other M&S food stores in Dubai, will provide convenient meal-ideas, kitchen cupboard essentials, quintessentially British foods, delicious bakery items and chilled and frozen favourites. With over 1,700 premium food lines available, families can turn meal times into a main event with M&S’s superb range of tasty vegetables, bright salads and oven-ready meals.

Also on the shelf at the new food store are M&S’s stunning food gift hampers. From indulgent Belgian Chocolate gift bags to Swiss Chocolate assortments and even gluten-free delights, M&S food hampers are perfect for your favourite foodie!

The Springs community can also enjoy M&S’s famous M&S Café, serving a variety of delicious meals, from healthy smoothies to an extensive selection of soups, salads, sandwiches and pastas, as well as British classics such as Fish and Chips and Afternoon Tea. The M&S Café uses only the finest ingredients, including a wide range of 100% Fairtrade teas and 100% Columbian Arabica Coffee that can be enjoyed with a selection of all-butter rich pastries.

“From our award-winning cheeses, to sustainably sourced fresh food, M&S is continuing to grow in popularity in Dubai. That’s why expanding our food stores here presents us with a strong growth opportunity. Our new stand-alone food store at the recently opened Springs Souk really puts M&S on the map as the must-go destination for food lovers in the area,” says Stephen Rayfield, vice president of M&S MENA and Asia.

The new food store complements M&S’s 30 stores across the Gulf and online presence.
