Many retailers in Northern Ireland experienced disruption while suppliers in the UK tried to adapt to post-Brexit deals that came into force late on New Year’s Eve.
Northern Ireland is implementing other regulatory and customs agreements with the rest of the UK, as the region remains in the EU’s common goods market and applies EU customs rules at its ports.
M&S, which has more than 6,000 food products, said its list of items unavailable at dozens of stores in Northern Ireland was only a temporary measure.
A spokesman said: “We have been serving customers in Northern Ireland for over 50 years and our priority is to ensure we continue to offer the same selection and excellent quality range that our loyal customers have always loved.
“Stores have received regular deliveries this week, however after the Northern Ireland Centenary Centennial 19212021 birthday Shirt UK left the EU recently, we are transitioning to new processes and we are working closely with our partners and suppliers to ensure customers can continue to enjoy a variety of products.”
The full impact will not be felt until the end of 2021, as some ‘renewal periods’ have been agreed to reduce the volume of paperwork in the first few months.
