Marks & Spencer has announced that it is extending its opening hours until midnight for the final shopping days before Christmas.

This marks the longest ever store opening hours that the retailer has offered in time for the festive period.

From December 21 to 23, 400 M&S stores across the UK – which is two-thirds of its store estate – will be open until midnight to give customers extra time to shop.

M&S retail, operations and property director Sacha Berendji said: “We want our customers to be able to shop with confidence this Christmas.

“Which means supporting social distancing in our stores and minimal queueing outside as the weather gets colder.”

M&S recommends customers check its store finder tool for the latest hours.

What are M&S opening hours for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day?

Last year, most M&S stores shut at 6pm on Christmas Eve.

M&S stores across the UK will be shut on Christmas Day.

What are M&S opening hours for Boxing Day until New Year?

M&S stores will keep their doors closed on Boxing Day.

Steve Rowe, CEO at M&S said stores will stay closed on December 26 so staff can “enjoy more special time with their loved ones”.

They will reopen on December 27, but hours will be reduced.

What are M&S opening hours over New Year?

Stores will be open on New Year’s Eve from 8am, but are set to have slightly earlier closing times.
