Marks and Spencer


Recommended Posts

Have twice now ordered ready made platters of sandwiches for a funeral lunch from Marks and Spencers on Lordship Lane supposedly to pick up from 9am onwards and twice now the delivery has not arrived in full until 11am. The first time that was too late for the funeral, the second funeral was later so we managed to go back and pick up the rest. V. Stressful. M&S have not been particularly helpful in investigating this and cannot reassure me that this wouldn't happen again in the future.

It's not something that most us do very often but having done it twice and had it go wrong twice, just wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience.

M&S are sure that my experience is just a blip, or two random blips coinciding!

Maybe they are right but I won't be risking it a third time.

I have had reason to complain to M&S several times, and their customer services have always been extremely helpful (including in one case where sadly the local store was not at all helpful).

I contacted customer services online. If that's what you have already done and they weren't helpful, then I agree, email the CEO. That usually gets results :))

ETA: Even if you aren't bothered about compensation, which I wasn't but they offered it anyway, it at least may prevent somebody else from having the same bad experience.

One of my complaints wasn't about sandwich deliveries, but it was about food delivery for Christmas 2018, when we were left without crucial parts of our food order for our Christmas meal.

    • This is clearly far from a unique issue. Somebody posted this on Facebook and it is so similar to posts here I asked him if he was with Tessa Jowell - he said "no, Lewisham".  "This morning on the microsecond of 8am I tried to get through to my GP on the phone...it went straight through to Hold. Tried again. Same thing. Tried a third time...Same thing. OK, I thought, I will hold. 32 minutes later, I gave up. The voice said "Did you know you can now book appointments online?" NO YOU CAN'T...I have the Patient Access App & for the past 2 years it has said "This practice is unable to book appointments online." Anyhooooo...on way back from shops I popped into the actual surgery to see if I could book an appointment in advance...that was my second mistake...Receptionist said "No. You will have to ring up on a Monday morning to see if we have any for that week" "Oh, and what time should I ring?" "It's best to ring at 8am" "But i just spent 32 minutes this morning on hold and couldn't even get through" "Yeah, sorry about that, we are short-staffed at the moment...but did you kn ow you can now book appointments in advance online?" "No, you can't" "Well, there are sometimes some appointments available online" "Nope, no there aren't...looked every day for 2 years and not a scintilla of an appointment..." "Well, you could always ring up at 8am" "You do know the whole system is completely falling to pieces?" Receptionist gives rueful look. In case I lost it and set fire to the whole fecking GP Practice there and then, I left. I will try again tomorrow morning at 8am. And see if Dr Godot will see me...We are well and truly f****d, peoples."
    • Hi, it might be too late but have you tried Discogs?  https://www.discogs.com/search/?q=can't+take+my+eyes+off+you+frankie+valli&type=all&country_exact=UK
    • Brilliant.  This is the right place As we need some support.  I will be in touch. TY
    • Long time cyclist and driver here, (but I cycle much more than drive). Sadly I'm not sure we're ever going to get over this.  The pro- and anti- camps are so polarised that compromise and acceptance seems impossible; it feels like someone has to be the winner. I had a break in Berlin recently and the attitude seems so different.  There were loads and loads of cyclists (most non-electric as far as I could tell) but everyone adhered to the rules.  Motorists and cyclists always stopped at red lights.  Pedestrians only crossed at crossings and only when the green man light was lit.  There were cycle lanes, sometimes borrowed from the road, sometimes from the pavements but always used.  What's needed is a cultural shift in mindset.
