Upmarket grocer M&S has quashed rumours that it is planning to move out of Berkhamsted.

Contributors to the Facebook page Everything Berko claimed that they had heard that the Simply Food store was due to close, sparking much speculation on the public page.

But this week a spokesman for M&S, which opened a store in the market town in May this year, said: “We have no plans to close our Berkhamsted Simply Food store.”

She added that the store will be recruiting temporary staff as it does across all of its branches in the run up to Christmas.
