We all know that TGIF is something that most people look forward to. But for parents with younger children, having to crack their brains to think of where to go on the weekend can be stress-inducing.
If you’ve been searching the web for places to bring the whole family to this weekend – only to realise that you’ve checked off most of them – here’s one more to add to your list: Marks & Spencer (M&S).
That’s right – the iconic British retailer’s back with a bang. Brace yourself for a brand-new pop-up store at 313@somerset, a refreshed VivoCity store, and a revamped Wheelock Place outlet with a one-stop baby shop, Singapore’s largest food hall and a brand-new Home section.
We’re calling it: M&S is the place to head for an exciting day out with your little ones.
Shop till you drop: One-stop Baby Shop & Clothing for Cool Kids
What’s a weekend without shopping? At the M&S Baby Shop, you’ll be able to get everything your little (and not-so-little) ones need while keeping them looking great.
Dress them up in pretty colours and adorable prints with the organic cotton printed tees, pure cotton bodysuits, flowy strappy dresses, woven playsuits, and more!
Avid movie fans will love the Slam Dunk collection carefully created by M&S to celebrate the highly-anticipated sports comedy film by Warner Bros. Pictures, “Space Jam: A New Legacy”. Cool kids can flaunt the vibrant colours, playful graphics, and witty slogans featured in the collection of T-shirts and basketball style shorts as they watch their favourite Looney Tunes characters come to life.
In true M&S style, all of the cotton used is sourced responsibly and extremely breathable. Cute, comfortable, and sustainably-sourced. It doesn’t get any better than this.
Eat to your heart’s content: Singapore’s Largest Food Hall
M&S Wheelock Place is back and better than ever with a new 8,000 square feet Food Hall with more than 3,800 food products, including over 500 new chilled lines focusing on cheeses, deli, fruits, yogurt and fresh vegetables.
The largest food hall in Singapore will highlight the outstanding quality and freshness of M&S’ mouthwatering food and offer foodies unrestricted access to everyone’s favourite M&S’ popular chilled prepared meals, British favourites like Shortbread, Scones and Crumpets, a new cheese barge that will showcase the retailer’s best cheese selection, and new lines of ready-to-eat items like fresh sandwiches, salads, and fruits.
With freshness guaranteed, these products are safe for your little ones to eat as well. So everyone, big or small, gets to indulge in the best of M&S’ food.
But let’s face it: your kids will almost immediately be drawn to M&S’ all-new partyware range that features the well-loved Percy Pig. With plates, cups, straws and napkins, M&S has your next dinner party covered. For more party fun, be sure to grab some Colin Caterpillar bakes and gums, Percy Pig biscuits, confectionaries, dessert sauce, sprinkles and even a phizzy pop.
When you and your little one get hungry after all that shopping, head to M&S’ popular in-store bakery and coffee bar for some food and drinks.
