Marks & Spencer-
This enduring retail partnership began back in 1894 in a small shop in Manchester, but Marks and Spencer (M & S) now boasts more than 300 stores in the UK and 400 stores worldwide. M & S is one of Britain's most reliable and trusted stores, famed for selling high quality food, clothing and lingerie and household goods. Its ready meals, cakes, and desserts are some of the best on the market. The sandwiches, fruit and vegetables are of a consistently high standard, though not exceptionally cheap. The clothing line (including the Per Una range - not carried by all stores), is high quality and fairly priced. The store also continues to be a stalwart supplier of homeware, toys and beauty products. The company prides itself on the virtues of quality, service, innovation and trust. It very rarely fails to deliver. A fine British shopping institution.
Founded in the late 19th century, Marks & Spencer has grown to become one of the UK's most recognizable stores. Marks & Sparks, as it's affectionately called, offers a diverse assortment of goods. Affordable but fashionable clothing for the entire family is standard, along with furniture and domestic goods. Flowers and gift items also figure into the scheme, and the chain is well known for its large supply of groceries and foodstuffs. In addition, M&S gets kudos for its well-crafted underwear, a favorite of many shoppers.
