Our new store opens in White City Retail Park in Manchester this Saturday, and there are loads of great reasons to attend.

From exclusive money off vouchers to celebrates, we’ve got an exciting afternoon lined up for you!

To celebrate the opening of our new store, customers will be greeted by Manchester United and Manchester City legends Alex Stepney and Paul Dickov.

Alex Stepney, a former Manchester United goalkeeper, was part of the famous Matt Busby team that became the first English team to lift the European Cup in 1968. During his time at Old Trafford, Stepney shared the pitch with some of the greatest legends of the game, with names like George Best, Bobby Charlton and Brian Kidd all playing alongside him during his 12 years at the Theatre of Dreams.

On the blue side of Manchester, Paul Dickov, was a true fan favourite at Maine Road between 1996 and 2002, firing them to back to back promotions in the process. During this time Dickov was credited with scoring the ‘City’s Greatest Ever Goal’ with his top corner equaliser in the 1999 play-off final, which City eventually won to secure a place in the First Division for the 1999/2000 season.

On Saturday, both of these legends of the beautiful game will be in store between 1pm and 3pm to meet and greet fans and customers, posing for photographs and signing autographs.

The first 100 lucky customers will have the chance to get their hands on a football signed by Dickov and Stepney, so make sure you get down early!

As well as offering you the opportunity to meet these footballing legends, the first 20 customers who purchase on the day will receive a FREE M&S gift card to the value of £25.

With all of this going on, we know you’ll have a great time at our Manchester store opening, so get down and make an afternoon of it!
