In a move announced a couple of months ago, Marks and Spencer has cut the ribbon on a Victorian-style stall at the site the company began almost 130 years ago, Leeds Kirkgate Market.
The brand, born in 1884 as a Penny Bazaar, has opened a stall at the site with heritage products and a coffee shop. The new Marks & Spencer shop features a small display detailing the firm’s history and sells a range of sweets, mugs, cards and other items.
