4 reviews of Marks & Spencer in English
I went to M and S last week with a friend and found the choice a lot better than a few years ago. We even managed to buy nice summer jackets which of course there was a nice range. Our size wasn't there so we asked one of the assistants who went straightaway and got the size we needed. Not only once did she go but twice so you can't knock the staff. They were very helpful and my friend even thanked her on the way out.
If you are just going in here for a browse, with no particular aim, then it is possible to find a few bargains in here. But if you have a specific item then it seems that they never seem to have what you’re looking for in this particular Marks and Spencer. Which is strange since it is huge! I do love a bit of Marks and spencer, and there isn’t anything extremely bad about this one, but there just never seems to be anything I want! Don’t get me wrong, I have bought things from here before - Knickers, glasses, silly presents, but only on a whim. If you are going for something in particular then I would recommend going to a proper M&S.
I’d like to think you could always find a bargain in the Marks and Spencer outlet in the Lowry Outlet Mall, but this hasn’t always been the case in my experience. I’ve popped in on a number of occasions, but many items (clothing, lingerie, shoes) have only ever seemed to be a pound or so cheaper - not the huge saving you’d expect.
On the times I have found a bargain, I’ve been faced with huge queues at the tills. This is made even worse with Christmas approaching. The store could greatly benefit from a separate refund and customer service till, and sales staff who work a little quicker!
The shop isn’t overly big, and seems a little tucked away within the Lowry Mall.
Now is the time to hit the Lowry Outlet Mall for you gifts. You can buy a whole host of things from this outlet these days. It’s really come on from days as a 'Out of ghost town Mall’ - there’s even a Black and Decker discount shop (that’s a few Xmas gifts taken care of!).
I reckon I can find many more things on my Xmas shopping list from this Marks and Spencer’s discount store. From fancy bathroom products, to Royally endorsed biscuits and lingerie to kitchen products - they’re all on sale here, at far cheaper prices than in their main stores. I always find the stores (even the modern building M & S in the city) to be a little staid. I think somebody bought some 'underpants’ from here once, but I just never felt like wearing them. Clothes aside though, you can usually pick up gifts for family members more fitting of M & S’s charms.
This store is by no means as large as the main city store, but it manages to fit in a lot for the size. From the evening gowns section you’ll find a view overlooking Old Trafford Football Club.
