The Marks & Spencer Simply Food store planned for Berkhamsted is now not expected to open its doors until the spring of 2014.

The shop will be in the former Royal Mail sorting office, in the town’s High Street, after the firm signed a 20-year lease with the site’s new owner, Metric Property.

Metric has set aside £5m to convert the building. The site will include two other units new units that could be used as shops or a restaurant.
