M&S moves to a new location and we welcome a Hickory’s Smokehouse at Squire York!
M&S to Close on Eagles Meadow
You may have heard that the branch of Marks and Spencer on Eagles Meadow will be closing and that the food hall is moving to Plas Coch. M&S have been on the shopping precinct since 2008 but will close the building in August.
The company has announced that some of their staff will have jobs on the new site while others will relocate to nearby stores.
Regional manager David Hughes said, “The brand-new M&S Foodhall in the Plas Coch Retail Park will offer a brilliant food shopping experience with a fresh marketplace design. It will provide almost 50% more space for food and other exciting new features, including a cheese barge, digital wine tasting and a bigger in-store bakery.”
New Hickory’s at Squire York
Hong Kong-owned Greene King, the country’s largest pub retailer and brewer, have released plans to convert the Squire York pub near Coed-y-Glyn into a Hickory’s Smokehouse.
Greene King acquired Hickorys in October last year. The barbeque food specialist features smokers brought over from Memphis, Tennessee, to prepare its distinctive smokehouse fare.
A Greene King spokesperson said, “We can confirm we are transforming the Squire York into a Hickory’s Smokehouse for Wrexham.”
“We are still notifying the pub team so we can’t confirm any further details publicly until those briefings are completed. The Squire York will remain open and trading normally for several months before any changes occur.”
