A SHOP in Hedge End is hosting an exclusive celebration for customers this weekend, to mark the complete transformation of its food departments.

The M&S branch in Hedge End has redesigned its food section, helping it be as "easy and inspirational" as possible for customers.

Now staff are giving back to customers with a "Golden Ticket Giveaway", which will see the first 350 customers who enter the food department on Saturday January 18 receive £5 or £20 worth of vouchers to spend in the store.

Six lucky customers will also walk away with larger gift cards, two or which are worth £200 and four worth £100.

Store Manager, Julia Palmer-Bennet, said: “We’re really excited to celebrate with our customers on Saturday – every element of our new Food section has been designed with them in mind, helping to make their shopping as easy and inspirational as possible.

"From seasonal British produce showcased in our new greengrocer-style Fresh Market, to an extended Bakery, Instagram-worthy rotating pizza oven and a dedicated pasta chef in our new and improved Deli, our store is the ultimate one-stop-shop for local families on the go.

"Marking this new chapter will be a great moment for the team – we hope you can join us!”

There will also be free slices of celebration cake handed out by the store's own "Percy and Penny Pig",opportunities to taste M&S' seasonal produce and latest launches and a face painter at the store for children (between 8am to 12pm and 2pm to 6pm).
