Marks & Spencer has announced its new flagship store at 100 Avenue des Champs-élysées in Paris.Marks & Spencer Chief Executive, Marc Bolland, joined by international supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to officially mark the retailer's return to France.

Trading over three floors, the 1,400 square metre store is part of M&S' 'bricks & clicks' strategy, as it returns to the French market with a combined store and e-commerce offer.

We've had numerous requests from consumers in France for our food and clothing, so we're pleased to be coming back to serve French customers once again.
