WH Smith has opened the doors for their newly re-launched store in Royal Blackburn Hospital.
The new and improved store has reopened incorporating an M&S Food To Go shared space.
It now offers patients and visitors a range of M&S chilled food, alongside WH Smith’s offering of news, books and convenience products.
The opening of the store follows the unveiling of a new Costa Coffee at Royal Blackburn Hospital, which is operated under franchise by WH Smith.
Ian King, head of business development at WH Smith said: “We are excited to bring the WH Smith and M&S brands together in this new shared space at Royal Blackburn Hospital, and to open our first full store franchise with Costa Coffee.
“We look forward to welcoming patients, staff and visitors to the stores and offering the convenience of a wider range of products.”
James Maguire, divisional director of estates and facilities for East Lancashire Hospitals Trust, said previously: “We’re really excited to be adding to the food and drink retail offers at the Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital and giving patients, visitors and colleagues here more choice.”
