Save Marks and Spencer, update and kind words from supporters

At time of writing we have 984 signatures on the petition, we are hoping this number keeps rising for obvious reasons. Worth mentioning that the petition is set so that every signature send a automatic Email to Marks and Spencer press office. Redcar Blog would like too thank everyone for taking the time to sign the signature and join in the discussion on the Facebook page, have included links to both below.

Here are some of the comments from the latest people to sign the signature, clearly demonstrating the level of local opposition to the closure of the Redcar Marks and Spencer store, with also signatures coming from outside Redcar:

This store is clearly important locally. M&S need to review their own business ethics; I will be reviewing my use of any M&S stores/products if this goes ahead. Daryl Williams, Kensington.

I grew up in Redcar and I feel this store has and is a major part of the community and its retail options. Claire Houghton, Oxfordshire.

This is one of the few remaining shops which have been trading in Redcar for many years. Despite M&S being available online, there is no substitute to being able to walk around a store, with friendly and helpful staff, browsing the rails, having facilities to try clothes on, and not having to pay a delivery fee and wait in for days for a parcel to arrive...only to find that the items which looked so good online are not suitable, and then having the trouble and expense of returning them!

There are so few reasons to go into Redcar nowadays, branches of most of the shops, banks etc, are also in nearby Guisborough, and the parking there is free! I’m sure that M&S draws customers into Redcar to the benefit of other stores too; it is an established part of shopping in Redcar and should remain so for many years to come. Cheryl Anderson, Redcar

Elderly friends live in the town & travel is difficult for them. John Butterfield, Redcar

My mother and sister and her family leave near and use this store a lot. When I organised my Mum's 90th birthday last year I was able to order all the food and collect it from Redcar M&S. The service was great the food lovely, the party a memory that has no price. Thank you M&S REDCAR. Patricia Murphy, Redcar.
