Now what’s this headline all about? The results of some naughty spanking session? Grimy lines on your undies? Well as tempting as it is to write about both those things, it’s something entirely different and, I have to admit, a lot less thrilling. But it’s something that regular readers will know drives me mad, the tendency for Marks & Spencer’s to completely make a hash of presenting themselves engagingly in-store.
Now after a while away from the blog you’d think I’d come up with something a little bit more interesting than that and truth is I’ve got loads to write about but just can’t find the time at the moment. But something happened today whilst we were doing a bit of shopping which made me shake my head and I wanted to share it with you in a quick posting. Picture the scene, me and C walking around the Teddington branch of M&S with a trolley of goods when I came across this stand which is titled ‘NEW IDEAS’. Ah sounds good; I’m always keen to see what new items have been added to the increasingly exotic range of M&S foodstuffs. And what was this amazing new taste sensation? Er…tinned soup. Frigging TINNED SOUP! If you don’t believe me have a look…
I’d forgive them a little bit if it was a full display or if the varieties were exciting but the tins I saw contained chicken, winter vegetables and tomato and basil flavours. Oh that’s soooo new. Well done M&S you’ve left me speechless again.
