Marks and Spencers - Seoul
« on: February 17, 2011, 02:17:28 pm »
I've just found out there are a few Marks and Spencers stores in Seoul but I would like to know two things.

1. Do they sell food (i.e. British products)?
2. Which M&S is the biggest in Seoul?

I've googled it without much success

My wife says that now it's just a department store (clothes, etc.).  At one time they might have sold food, but no longer.  Sorry:(

Homeplus is good for some things (Tea!!!) but another option would have been nice.

Marks and Spencers unfortunately don't stock food but for a surprisingly good selection of foreign foods head to Itaewon and the "foriegn food mart".

Coming from the subway take a right and it's up the hill.

If you have costco membership they are here too (Korea that is NOT Itaewon).

Been to the one near Apujeong, but it's just clothing, as the poster above mentioned. Costs quite a bit more than in England, as well.

I would do any number of things to get my hands on some Marks and Spencers food products, especially flap jacks!!! I love their mini stores where you can go in and put together your own little lunch box. And so good for train ride snacks! Oh god, I'm just going to have to go on vacation there and bring back all my favs!

I was so excited when I saw it.  The M&S in Thailand sells some treats, at least.
