Just had a good laugh
« on: October 07, 2021, 04:02:01 PM »
I'm on a number of travel related Facebook groups and this poor lass ended up in London without her suitcase and was asking for places to get replacements cheaply/quickly.

Well one person responded (who lives in the US and probably has only been in an M&S once in their life)  said 'Marks and Spencers, it's like the American Target'

Oh good lord. My M&S is the our mall and doesn't even have a full food hall. I was shocked when I went into a bigger one and they had a deli and butcher counter.

There is nothing like Target here. It is a whole vibe.

And I think your M&S is quite a good one!!

I was at some farm type stores in Crief and Aberfeldy last weekend and they had large shells. Thought of PB.

Oooh nice!!!  I found some good sized shells in Sainsburys, that I will use, however, I swear the ones my Mom used to stuff were huge!

We were on the way to Edinburgh so I think it must have been close to the Gyle.

We have an M&S Food Hall in our small town, a short walk from where we live and we love it.

Our M&S is brilliant buuuut it's hardly the UK target even sightly and is not "cheap" or offering quick replacements
