In the weeks since the closure was announced, there has been growing speculation about what the old flagship could be used for.

M&S bosses have now appointed estate agents Savills to find a buyer for the huge building.

They say the 80,000sq ft site would be “potentially suitable for a variety of uses” – subject to planning approval from the council.

A prospectus, reported in the Press and Journal today, promotes the major investment going on in the city centre as a selling point.

The document states: “The property benefits from outstanding visibility and passing footfall from Union Street, which is located directly opposite.”
