M&S have clearly realised that there is more money in food given how much focus it is being given. I reckon they’ll open more food-only stores.
It's been the case for a long time now. Will be interesting to see how the Ocado switch from Waitrose to M&S food works out later in the year.

Re: The Barclays and other non-Lloyds/TSB Bank thread

I had an Egg MasterCard World card, which I used for work expenses back in the day. It was brilliant, generous introductory and ongoing cashback, good travel insurance, missed event ticket cover, extended warranties for electricals and white goods and no fee. The Egg product became Barclaycard Maste...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

EDIT - it's for Nectar, they're going to push using an app rather than a physical card, and the existing scanners wont scan phone displays. It's just a barcode reader though, nothing sinister.
