Retailer Marks and Spencer is to return to its roots by opening a new stall at the Leeds market where it was established nearly 130 years ago.
The food and clothing chain is to set up a heritage and coffee shop in Kirkgate Market in March, the city council confirmed.
Marks and Spencer said the new stall would give people in Leeds a chance to learn more about its origins.
It started as a penny bazaar when it opened in the market in the 1880s.
Sue Burgess, manager of Kirkgate Market, said: “This is such an exciting opportunity for the market and for Marks and Spencer as well. Michael Marks’ birthplace of M&S coming back to the market, it doesn’t get better than this [for us].”
