The company have shared the following tips to help customers avoid the need for queueing at this time:

Reserve a shopping slot to avoid queues

To make it even more convenient for key workers, the vulnerable or parents juggling home-schooling, the company have extended their popular shopping reservation service ‘Sparks Book & Shop’, meaning customers can reserve a shopping slot at a time that best suits them, removing the need to queue should there be one.

First trialled in September, before being rolled out to all stores as part of our commitment to help make shopping quicker, easier and safer for everyone, the service has been a huge hit with customers – having now facilitated over half a million bookings in total! It will be extended until the beginning of February at least.

Pay by Smartphone

Customers popping in for a smaller shop of essentials can also skip any queues at the till by paying for their shopping on their smartphone.  Mobile Pay & Go service is available via the M&S app and is incredibly easy to use for shops up to the value of £45. Simply open the app, scan the barcode of each product as you go, then pay from your phone using a card or Apple Pay.

What to look out for when you’re in-store

This January the company are focusing on healthy eating, launching their biggest ever range of products which taste good and are also also good for you and your family. The range features ground-breaking, nutritionist-approved Eat Well range to the very latest plant-based innovations, offering something for everyone.

Packed with veggies, vitamins and all the good stuff, if a product has the Eat Well seal of approval then you KNOW it’s good for you.

Eat Well Range

Eat Well is a set of nutritional guidelines, developed with guidance from the BNF, measuring key nutrients vital for a balanced diet.  Exclusive to M&S, the Eat Well logo clearly shows customers the product is a healthier choice, and will taste delicious too, of course. It’s like shopping with your very own nutritionist.
