Marks & Spencer wants fifth Chinese store

British retailer Marks & Spencer has announced its plans to open a new store in Shanghai, its fourth in the city and fifth in China (Ningbo, the world's fifth largest port, holds the other store). According to the Oriental Morning Post, the new store would be in the Changning district in Shanghai's old centre.

Marks&Spencer currently owns over 600 stores in the UK alone, ranging from smaller stores that only sell food (aptly named “Simply Foods”) to large flagship stores outside the city centres. The chain also has over 300 stores abroad, both self-owned and through franchising.
