Marks & Spencer back in Belgium?

26th February 2010, Comments 0 comments

Marks & Spencer CEO Stuart Rose hopes to reopen outlets of his iconic British store in Belgium.

The daily Le Soir reported on Thursday that the department store is revising its strategy.

In 2001, under the leadership of its Belgian CEO Luc Vandevelde, the company decided to concentrate mainly on the British market and many foreign outlets were closed.

At present Marks & Spencer (M&S) realises ten percent of its turnover abroad. The company now wants this to rise to twenty or even thirty percent.

At the end of 2001 the company closed its four Belgian outlets with the loss of 265 jobs.
