M&S has been hit by the de­par­ture of one of its se­nior ex­ec­u­tives.

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Opinion -

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.
