I have noticed a few comments on PIA about Marks and Spencers and as a M&S fan I thought I would email them to let them know we are missing them out here. If they can open a M&S in Singapore and Hong Kong, why not Australia?
So if you are interested, perhaps you can add to the thread and then I can email M&S back again and direct them to our comments and you never know!
This is my email to M&S and their response:
I emigrated from the UK to Australia in March 2007.
Have you considered opening a M&S in Australia, preferably Adelaide where I live?! We had to get our 'M&S fix' when we holidayed in Singapore recently and I think there would be a big demand for M&S here, especially in Adelaide as it has a large number of UK migrants and missing M&S often gets a mention on the internet forums.
Response from M&S:
Thank you for writing to us with your suggestion for a new M&S store in Adelaide. I am pleased that you have contacted us about this as our customer's views are very important to us.
Although I am unable to confirm that we will locate an M&S in Adelaide I have passed your suggestion onto our New Stores Development team at Head Office. They are continually looking for possible new sites and I know they will be happy to give your comments careful consideration.
Thank you again for getting in touch. It is always pleasing to hear from customers who are keen to enjoy shopping with us.
