Comments Off on Marks & Spencer tops 130,000 votes (FEB 2016)
Canada you just can’t help yourselves as we just pasted 130,000 votes on our poll to have Marks & Spencer come back to Canada this past Jan, 2016. Clearly the sentiment is still as strong as ever that Canadians, Ex-Pats & Fans want to see a few M&S Stores back here. International expansion is becoming a much bigger part of there business and with more than 455 stores trading in 54 Territories come on throw us a bone, Canada would love to have you back we miss you!
M&S recently launched M&S website for Australia and New Zealand, but we here in Canada are still getting the cold shoulder so to speak. They are making the M&S brand even more accessible to customers around the world. Their products are sold through our international stores across Europe, the Middle East and Asia and they continue to grow our international presence through a multi-channel approach.
We may not be the biggest market out there but we certainly could easily support a number of stores, Toronto being one of them. Hello we have lots of High Streets, Shopping Centers that in a few select cities could support M&S Stores. Who would love a Marks and Sparks no one other than us, they just need to reach out to us. As International retailers from around the world have flocked to the Toronto area in the last few years were is M&S?? Want to be a International Retailer surely that would mean a few shops here don’t you think?
We here at Simply British Foods cannot believe the responses we have had from all of you, it’s is overwhelming to see how the sentiment is still out there for Marks to come back into Canada after they pulled up stakes back in 1999. For all of you that have voted, that’s great as this is the only way they will take note and look into Canada for there next expansion plans, fingers crossed!
For those of you who have already voted, we want to say a big thank you! And for those who haven’t had the chance too, what are you waiting for! Keep the votes coming whatever your opinion may be, you can vote Yes or No. We will check in with an update when we hit 100,000 votes. Happy Voting!
Hey, M&S International are you watching??? Steve Rowe as the incoming Chief Executive have your team look at us here in Canada again this isn’t Canada circa 1970’s, 1980’s & 1990’s when M&S was ahead of there time. I remember hearing comments back in the day: What a strange store they have clothing and food in the same shop!
