About 60 jobs will be created with the opening of a Marks & Spencer Simply Food store in Cowley on Wednesday, June 6.

The store, at the Oxford Retail Park, will sell women's and menswear, schoolwear and home goods as well as 2,600 food lines, including ready meals, fresh produce, flowers and basic groceries.

At 9,000 sq ft, it is slightly smaller than the branch in Summertown, which will be relaunched on June 15 following a redesign.

advertisement The Cowley store is one of more than 20 to be opened by Marks & Spencer across Britain this year, creating 10,000 new jobs.
