The new Marks & Spencer store has been keeping schtum about when exactly it will open, leaving the expat crowd on tenterhooks. Today it was annouced by the Dutch CEO Marc Bolland in Het Parool today that the store is going to re-open on Wednesday 17th April!
Located on the Kalverstraat, it will open its doors at 11.30pm, and they expect there will be large queues. I should think so, after a ten year absence from the Netherlands! The Amsterdam store will be their flagship store selling food and clothing and there will be an e-boutique where you will be able to order additional ptroducts.
I for one, am ridiculously excited. Percy pigs, proper sandwiches, and delicious food. Here. I. Come! Here is an M&S ad to get you in the mood.
