The store is within easy walking distance of Victoria train station, and many buses stop here (Cross Street). You can also use the M&S car park (off Deansgate), which is located underneath both stores.
For men, they have a wide range of makes, including Ted Baker, Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren, Paul Smith, etc., and they also have quite a good formal section with very knowledgeable staff able to help you find the 'perfect' suit for work (and if not a new pair of jeans!)
They have an excellent selection of shoes (for both men and women) and a really cool trainer section that certainly offers more than your average pair of Nike or Reeboks.
For women they offer a massive range of clothing as they for men, but again it seems to be tailored at the younger end of the market and includes makes such as Ted Baker at the casual end of the market as well as much more dressy items for nights out!
As you enter the store the ground floor is taken up by leather goods including a massive range of makes such as Burberry and Louis Vitton (which offers its own separate boutique area).
For the home?
They also offer a range of gadget type items for the home, especially the kitchen and you can spend hours trying out different bits for around the home! One thing that caught my eye at Christmas (not sure why) was a designer rolling pin... Maybe that's taking things a bit too far!
The food hall located on the lower ground floor is amazing and offer some of the best ranges of fresh food that you will find anywhere! The bakery section is fantastic with a range of bread and pastries to make your mouth water just looking at them!
There's also a great range of choices to eat in the food hall with lots of little sit down bars offering everything from cheese and wine to sushi! Most dishes are made in front of you by counter chefs so you can really ensure that you get a meal that you want as well as being involved in cooking it!
At Christmas time, they always stock a really varied range of unusual gifts, whether it be chocolate and sweets from around the world or fuzzy slippers that you can't get anywhere else! They always have a really unusual selection of gift items which makes it a great place to shop if you are looking for a more unusual gift.
