Marka Ukraine (Kyiv), the office representative of the British Marks & Spencer brand in Ukraine, early February opened a new store in the French Boulevard shopping center in Kharkiv.
“We are pleased to reopen the doors of our store for Kharkiv citizens. Opening a new store in the city was a priority in 2018,” Marka Ukraine’s press service reported, citing CEO Bulent Temel.
Before the crisis in Ukraine, the Marks & Spencer store operated in Kharkiv in the Karavan shopping center, but was subsequently closed.
According to the press release, the area of the new store is 500 square meters.
