Marks & Spencer

Does anyone know if they plan to open a Marks & Spencer in Zurich. My wife is getting withdrawal symptoms!

Re: Marks & Spencer

The one in Geneva closed down last year, so I don't think any Zurich plans are in place.

That said, it was just a food shop, not a regular M&S.

Good thing, though, is flights are cheap to the UK, so she can go and stock up now and again

Re: Marks & Spencer

If your wife just wants the clothes she can shop online
www.marksandspencer.com they will deliver to Switzerland for 12.50.
You will get charged with customs taxes when the package arrives.
I just spent 50 on some goods and was taxed 25CHF when the products arrived.

Re: Marks & Spencer

There used to be four in Belgium when we lived there: all of them made a profit but the Belgian MD decided to close them all, as well as those in France [amid a huge hue and cry] but "cost cutting" was and still is the name of the game. Just been to UK and traversed the M+S in Watford - what a pleasure!

Closed? Closed? It was always handy (-ish) to pick up work shirts, socks and shreds...

Re: Marks & Spencer

I am with your wife on that one! While they're at it ,could they please also open......Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose,and a great butcher that sells rib of beef (on the bone) and why oh why can't I buy LARGE bottles of tonic water. God this country needs to catch up with the rest of the world.
On balance though, It's ok here
