Why We Need M&S In the United States

Marks & Spencer, (M&S) is a leading retailer in the United Kingdom and hosts a wide array of beautiful fashions for men, women, and children. Not only this, but M&S has a beauty department complete with everything a man or woman could need for skin care, toiletries, and makeup. Many M&S department stores are two to three levels, boasting home goods as well. On the first floor of your average M&S, you will find a bustling supermarket. From a floral department to fresh produce, M&S is truly a one stop shop for everything a household could possibly need. The British retailer also happens to provide its customers with something else that sets them apart: delivery within one hour. Most busy working professionals dread having to go to the grocery store after a busy day of work. After an already long and stressful day, doing an errand is the last thing that sounds appealing. What if someone could just show up at you house when you arrive home from work and deliver your groceries to you? This would mean dinner is literally on your doorstep.

M&S offers customers many specials with a "Sparks card," which conveniently matches deals and offers according to what the individual buyer likes to purchase. Each week, a shopper can choose from an array of offers designed for them. Shopping is enjoyable and feels more personalized thanks to the Sparks card. For busy individuals, M&S can deliver groceries to a person's home simply by ordering online. Purchases are available for home delivery within just one hour, and they are also available for click-&-collect.

Why We Need M&S In the United States

We need M&S in the United States because many busy professionals don't have a lot of time left in their day once they've picked up kids from school and have returned home from a busy day of work to go collect groceries from the supermarket. Home delivery options would free up a lot of time during the day, allowing for family time after work instead of having that time being devoted to running more errands after an exhausting day at work. Togle ensures that M&S groceries are delivered within one hour. This is a perfect option for anyone who is busy and needs a little more time in their day for themselves instead of having to dedicate it to getting in the car, picking up groceries, and getting home. For people who need to collect groceries on foot, Togle's delivery option means they can order more food because they won't have to worry about hauling all of their groceries home in hand.

Ordering groceries frequently from M&S adds up to more savings for the shopper with the Sparks card. When using their Sparks card, shoppers are rewarded and are frequently offered additional deals each week, including money off groceries and free items during their next purchase. Shoppers will delight in the array of beautiful produce at M&S, fresh baked goods in the bakery, and delicious ready meals from British roast chicken to spaghetti Bolognese. M&S also offers a wide range of healthy options, from gluten free to low carb that are also in the ready meal variety.

Currently, there aren't a lot of options in the United States when it comes to large grocery retailers that offer delivery to the home. This means that many people have no choice but to go out and get groceries or hire a middleman to get their groceries for them. It would seem that ordering directly from the retailer themselves would be preferable because if anything goes wrong with the order or something is missing, the store can make efforts to correct it in the future and even refund the customer upon delivery.

Ordering groceries online also means that the website remembers your previous orders, meaning that your next order can be hassle-free with just a click of a button. It would mean that you no longer have to go up and down aisles in a grocery store, searching for those specific ingredients for dinner tonight. Instead, you just search for them on the site and they are delivered to your door within one hour. Based on how busy the average American is throughout their week, the United States would benefit greatly from having M&S in the United States. High quality food that is available for home delivery is a win-win for all.
