Help Save East Kilbride's Marks and Spencer from Closure!

Marks & Spencer has been an integral part of East Kilbride's town centre and its shopping offering all my life. It offers a quality product unlike anything else in the town centre, as all other food retailers are budget or middle-range. The store enjoys a loyal patronage, but the powers that be within M&S have systematically ran the store down over the past few years by diminishing quality lines and offerings, leaving much of the store in a sorry, bleak state. Whilst EK does have an M&S in the retail park, it is nowhere near as convenient for those who don't drive, even with the option of public transpart, and the loss of it would really bring the town centre down. Of course people are going to go elsewhere if the money isn't spent on the store to make it look appealing to shop in and they don't receive the necessary stock to attract shoppers in.

To Sacha Berendji, M&S retail operations director, we say re-think your proposal to close our M&S. If need be, reconfigure the store unit, perhaps reducing the size of the store to a food-only offering, but don't close what is - for us - an important part of our town centre and community.
