Earlier this year, Bristol also said goodbye to its Debenhams store after nearly 50 years of business as the chain went into administration. M&S had been in the city centre since 1952 after the redevelopment of Broadmead, however , the closure of the store is said to be part of a wider UK property reshape by the retailer. Shoppers have been instructed to visit other Bristol branches but there are serious concerns that the loss of yet another high-street brand could be the 'death' of Broadmead. Bristol Live spoke with loyal M&S shopper Jill McGrane, who shared she was "disappointed" at the closure whilst also "surprised" as she believes the store was always very busy. And there's another reason to mourn the loss of the shop, even if you weren't a regular customer. Research undertaken by CIA Landlords has shown that living near a Marks and Spencer can add a hugely impressive £6,896.77 to the value of your home. Bristolians have shared their shock and sadness over the closure of the iconic store, and also shared some suggestions of what could take its place on a recent Facebook Live. One of the most common things shoppers are expecting to see come to Broadmead is residential, luxury flats. Housing may not be that much of an out of place addition, as luxury flats already sit in Bristol city centre - above Harvey Nichols and in the surrounding area. Some are concerned the building could be used for student accommodation, to add to the already large portfolio of student accommodation around Bristol's city centre. Others suggested that part of M&S should remain, with the multinational retailer opening a food hall, like the ones based on Whiteladies Road and in Eastgate retail park. One reader suggested that the large space be filled with an indoor food market and there were also calls for it to be used as accommodation for homeless people. But there were some who wanted to see it not used as shops or accomidation, but instead suggested using the location as another Wetherspoons for Bristol.
