POSH nosh and budget grub could be sold on a former rugby ground.
Marks & Spencer plans to open a Simply Food store on the former site of Huddersfield Rugby Union Club off Wakefield Road, Waterloo.
The upmarket shop will sit next to a proposed Aldi ‘Concept’ superstore.
Budget retailer Aldi was granted permission earlier this year by Kirklees Council planners for a supermarket and a non-food retail unit with parking spaces, access and landscaping at the former ground.
Now the budget chain plans to build two food and one non-food retail units on the site, which sits behind The Tandem pub.
The new plans include 226 parking spaces.
The Marks & Spencer Simply Food chain has more than 170 branches around the country, including more than 40 franchises at airports, railway stations and motorway service areas.
Each store is an average of 5,000 square feet and stocks some 2,000 products.
The Marks & Spencer empire now stretches to more than 600 stores located throughout the UK, this includes its largest store at Marble Arch, London.
In addition, the company has 240 stores worldwide, including more than 219 franchise businesses, operating in 34 countries.
They are moving to a site which has stood empty for many years.
Huddersfield Rugby Union Club relocated to Lockwood Park in 1997.
Despite plans to regenerate the site, it has remained vacant since the club left.
The club had been offered more than £1m for its first team pitch to make way for a superstore back in 1989.
