ScotRail has confirmed a new M&S Food store is set to open at Glasgow Queen Street station tomorrow, operated by franchise partner WHSmith.
Rail users will benefit from high quality food-to-go from Thursday, 9 February 2023, when Percy Pig will be on-hand to welcome shoppers to the new store when doors open at 10am.
The much-anticipated opening of the new city centre store will be welcome news to many ScotRail customers.
Designed with people on the go in mind, the new outlet will offer a wide range of products from fresh, convenient, food and drink options for now and later, to bakery items and fresh flowers, with self-service checkouts for those looking to grab a quick snack for the train.
Located right next to the Dundas Street entrance of the station, the unit occupies a 131sq m retail space, and is located in the perfect place to pick up bite to eat at the start or end of a journey.
The store opening hours are 6:30am-10pm, Monday to Saturday, and 7am-10pm on Sundays.
ScotRail, represented by commercial property experts, Advance Ventures, is working to secure more retailers for the redeveloped station.
