A LONG-serving Marks and Spencer employee helped re-launch Merry Hill’s new-look store this morning.

Gwyn Morton, who has worked for the company for 44 years and at the shopping centre store since it opened, helped manager Mark Brown cut a ribbon to officially open the made-over shop to customers.

The makeover includes a newly introduced deli counter in the food hall, a bank, an extended cafe, a new beauty department and changes to the womenswear, menswear, lingerie and kidswear departments.
