A NEW M and S foodhall will open at Cortonwood next week - and other popular retailers including River Island won't be far behind.

The foodhall will bring 57 new jobs to the area when it opens its doors to the public on Wednesday August 30.

The 9,000 sq ft store offers the M and S range of food and drink as well as a cafe.

Other retailers set to open as part of the £36m development include Outfit, H&M, New Look, River Island, Clarks, JD Sports, Wilko, Poundland and Frankie & Benny's.
