Was it the free champers or the shopping? 

Hundreds queue to shop at new Marks and Sparks
 
There was no sign of a dip in retail spending in north Swindon today, as shoppers flocked to the opening of a brand-new Marks and Spencer.
 
Store manager Dave Smith and his team of staff unveiled their 37,186 sq ft store at the Orbital Shopping Park with a traditional ribbon cut - before inviting over two hundred queuing customers through the doors to continue celebrations inside with a complimentary glass of champagne.

A menswear department featuring the Autograph range plus childrenswear, lingerie and accessories are also available, plus homeware.
 
Shoppers can also expect to find an extra-large M&S Food Hall plus an 80-seater cafe.
