To celebrate the store's opening on Thursday staff were giving out thousands of samples of refreshing juices to commuters.

The new store is set to create more than 50 new jobs and is located on the upper concourse in the mainline station replacing the former Upper Crust baguette shop.

Designed primarily with commuters in mind, the store is likely to appeal to locals too. The range includes ready meals, snacks, salads, flowers, wines and chocolates.

The new store is operated by SSP UK Rail. Over the past three years the company has opened 23 Simply Food stores at railway stations across the country as part of an agreement with Marks & Spencer.

"We're continuously looking at ways to increase the choices available to rail travellers and the Marks & Spencer Simply Food concept has already become a hit with London commuters," says Bob Johnson of SSP UK Rail.

"We already have a number of Marks & Spencer Simply Food stores at busy mainline stations including Euston, Charing Cross, Waterloo, King's Cross and Paddington which are proving a great success. I'm sure the arrival of the new Marks & Spencer Simply Food store will be a welcome addition to London Bridge."

The Simply Food store at Waterloo opened three years ago and was extended this year. The only other Simply Food store in SE1 is located on the More London estate.

The London Bridge store will be open Monday-Saturday 7am-midnight and Sunday 8am-10pm.
