Marks and Spencer and Lidl are to open new stores at Two Rivers, Staines-Upon-Thames

Marks and Spencer will relocate to a flagship 20,000 sq ft store at Two Rivers compromising a new foodhall over 50% larger than the old store in the town. Lidl have also chosen Two Rivers as its preferred location in the town satisfying a long held requirement. Lidl opened a 15,700 sq ft store at the end of June.

Two Rivers is the prime shopping, convenience and leisure destination in Staines Upon Thames. Marks and Spencer and Lidl join Next, TK Maxx, Wagamama, Metrobank, Boots, Pret a Manger and Vue Cinemas at Two Rivers.

Simon Moscow from Aberdeen Standard Investments commented: “Through proactive asset management, The Two Rivers Limited Partnership is delighted to bring Marks and Spencer and Lidl to Two Rivers.  Both retailers will add to the well-rounded shopping, convenience and leisure offering, reinforcing Two Rivers as the premier destination in Staines Upon Thames.”

Henry Neel, Lidl GB’s regional head of property, said: “We remain committed to feeding the nation at this time, and continue to see incredible demand for Lidl stores across the country to provide essentials.  We look forward to offering our quality products and incredible value to shoppers in and around the local area.  It is great for us to be able to create more jobs and investment opportunities in the area, and we are proud to be able to serve the local community at this time.”

Jayne Saunders, M&S head of region, said:”We’re excited to be opening a brand new, large M&S Foodhall in Staines at the Two Rivers retail park, which will give local customers 50% more Foodhall space than our current store.  The new store will be finished this winter and, in line with the expansion, our existing store in the Elmsleigh Shopping Centre will close once the development is complete.”

Two Rivers in Staines Upon Thames is owned by the Two Rivers Limited Partnership which is a joint venture between Aberdeen Standard Investments and M&G Real Estate. 

Lunson Mitchenall and Morgan Williams acted jointly for the Two Rivers Limited Partnership.
