Pacific ‘Marks’ successful completion of Glasgow Airport project



A new Marks and Spencer Simply Food store has been delivered by Pacific Building at Glasgow International Airport.

The eye-catching outlet is situated on the ground floor, landslide, just along from Domestic Arrivals, which is handy, given that the airport has been promoting it with the slogan: “Don’t arrive home to an empty fridge.”

The four-week project saw Pacific rip out the unit – which had previously been occupied by Tesco Express – and fit it out to the latest M&S specifications.

Works included bakery installation, tiling, ceilings, partitions, lighting, erection of shelving and refrigeration units, new shutters and doors, decoration, graphics and other branding materials.

At the opening on December 12, 2019, a spokesman for SSP UK, who operate the store on a franchise arrangement, said: “Whether you have been travelling for business or have been on holiday, you can get all your essentials here before you return home.”

This is the first Marks & Spencer to open at Glasgow Airport, and the company have high hopes for the new outlet.

A spokesman said: “We have over 1,600 lines, ranging from sandwiches, delicatessen, meals from around the globe and our very own in-store bakery with a selection of bread lines.

“So whether you are on the go and looking for a healthy snack, or you are returning from a trip and don’t want to go home to an empty fridge, our team in-store will be happy to help.”

Pacific managing director Brian Gallacher, said: “This is yet another high-profile project successfully delivered by our dedicated airport team, who have shown time and again that they are the best at what they do.

“Our experience of working at airports right across the United Kingdom brings us repeat business from satisfied clients time and again.”
