Blog: High hopes as new M&S clothing ranges hit stores

Petah Marian | 24 July 2013

Tomorrow (25 July) is set to be a big day for Marks and Spencer as its eagerly- anticipated clothing collection begins to hit stores.

Much is riding on the new range, the first under the new general merchandise management team, which is working to turnaround the category after eight quarters of decline.

While shareholders have high hopes for the line, company management is keen to play down expectations that this one collection will turn around its fortunes in women's wear.

Speaking to journalists alongside the collection's launch in May, general merchandise manager John Dixon said the clothing business can be described as either a juggernaut or an oil tanker, and that improvement will come incrementally rather than all at once.

The collection will start to hit stores tomorrow, with a full launch and advertising push in September.
