A massive half-price clothing sale has been launched by Marks & Spencer as the high-street shut down is leaving stores with unsold mountains in spring and summer. The distributor called the promotional flash a rainbow sale and hands over 10% of the income to NHS organizations. Sales give shoppers a minimum of 50 percent discount in the store. Summer clothing from €40 to € 15 is included in the wear and half-price jump suits at £ 29.
M&S is donating 10 per cent of the purchase price, excluding VAT, of all rainbow sale items to NHS Charities Together. Shoppers can get online orders via a contactless home delivery service or from collection points in stores situated next to food halls. They will also be able pick up bargains in the retailer’s 290 shared clothing and food branches, which have kept sections of their fashion floors open to sell clothing essentials.
The retailer confirmed that Richard Price is coming in July to confirm his new clothing boss. He had worked for seven years at M&S before but in 2012 he was dissatisfied with the retailer’s approach.
The price returns to M&S as shockwaves in the retail sector are sent by the pandemic. The effect of the crisis suggests that high street retailers are struggling with the canning of inventories for the upcoming season.
