stuart higgins started this petition to Marks & Spencer

The cafe in the Teddington branch of Marks & Spencer in Teddington has become a focal point for    much of the local community. It’s much more than a cafe for young families and older people and those who are on their own where they find comfort and companionship in conversation over a cup of tea and coffee and a slice of cake.

Its busyness is testimony to its popularity, its value, its easy accessibility on the High Street as well as the welcoming friendliness of its long-serving staff and the toilet facility. When Marks & Spencer set up in Teddington it made a key point of its support for the local community.

It is apparently one of the most successful branches of its size in the vast network of stores. Indeed, it has engaged proactively with the community with events such as wine-tastings which have always been over subscribed. Many of the store’s staff are local and on the friendliest of terms with many of the customers.

Does this amount to a broken promise by Marks & Spencer and yet another case of the big company putting profit before people?  If that is the case it is a terrible and shocking betrayal to the local community and a sad indictment of a company which allegedly values its reputation and customer service.

This proposal is highly damaging to both on a significant scale.

I hope the launching and support for this petition will lead to a change of heart because that is where the cafe sits - at the very heart of Teddington and a very compassionate and caring community. Thank you for your support.
