Save Basildon's Marks and Spencer

This petition had 3,979 supporters

Marks and Spencer has announced its proposed closure in Basildon town centre and the prospect of losing the first shop to open in Town Square is daunting...

But the game has now changed as the Government has promised to invest £10million in the town - just a day after the M&S announcement.

So now the next five years will be hugely exciting for both shopping and leisure in the town centre as plans for a cinema and restaurants in East Square look set to become reality.

M&S is key to our town. It is essential.

So, the Echo, is launching our 'Save Our M&S' petition and support the revamp of Basildon.
