A national retailer could soon be returning to Lichfield, the city’s MP has said.
Marks and Spencer has not had a presence in the area since the closure of the food hall in the Three Spires Shopping Centre.
The retailer had initially planned to relocate to a larger unit as part of the failed Friarsgate scheme.
But Lichfield MP Michael Fabricant said the company were now looking at returning to the city.
“I have been in contact with Marks and Spencer directors over the closure of the store in the city centre.
“They told me that while the store was too small to be viable, the profile of Lichfield is ideal for a food store. I believe they required a larger area and car parking.
“I understand that they are hoping to move to a site currently a disused factory adjacent to Lichfield Trent Valley station.”
