M&S has been hit by the departure of one of its senior executives.
Jo Jenkins was the director of the all-important clothing and beauty section. She’d only been in the job since May.
It is another sign that M&S isn’t getting it right in their clothing department.
When I was growing up, everyone went to M&S for all their clothes. It’s just not the case any more. I used to like their Per Una range but for ages now, I’ve only ever gone to M&S for food.
I think people like me, who were once loyal to it and shopped for so much there, have moved on.
And young people haven’t taken our place. Fashion brands and big-name labels have become more important to us and so has online shopping.
I think part of the issue is younger generations see it as where their parents went. I hope they find a way to sort it out.
M&S is a much-loved institution and I would hate to see it disappear.
