Marks & Spencer launches 1p bazaar

As we covered on one of the earlier post, Marks & Spencer's is this week celebrating 125 years in business with a throwback to the early days and a 1p bazaar involving literally millions of items. However, it has become apparent that many people have been left disappointed by the massive sell-off with a number of the more sought-after products being sold within minutes and people being left to buy retro sweets, socks and passport holders to name but a few.

There have been reports of people queueing overnight only to find out that within a few moments the 5000+ allocation of bazaar products per store had been sold out leaving many frustrated and in some cases angry. However, for those looking to acquire what is actually a large array of items for just 1p the good news is that each of the Marks & Spencer stores will be restocked today and tomorrow although you may need to be there very early to grab the bargains!

Marks & Spencer is one of the bellwethers of the UK retail sector and even though the company itself has been through a number of difficult periods it has outlived many of its more established competitors. While often criticised for being slow to react to customer fashions and customer needs the company has been changed from top to bottom since the introduction of Sir Stuart Rose.
