BBC commentary – The background to M&S store closures and the reasons

My first DataIntel outing on the airwaves talking to Winifred Robinson about Marks and Spencer store closures on BBC Radio 4 You and Yours programme – 31 Jan.

Why are they having to do this and what lies behind their strategy? There should be no surprise as all businesses have t adapt and change and M&S has such history and expectation on its shoulders that it is harder for them than most. Shareholders expectations are a big driver which is where private businesses like Aldi luck out!
