Our M&S.com flagship positions us as a leading multi-channel retailer. Launched in February 2014, the website gives us flexibility to cater to customers' changing shopping habits, whether they are shopping online via their mobile, on a tablet, or at Shop Your Way points in our stores. The site now has over 7 million registered users.
M&S has 480 wholly-owned, jointly-owned or franchised stores in 59 territories across Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Our International business now includes a fast-growing standalone Food operation, meaning that more people around the world can enjoy our delicious, innovative food products. Our significant physical presence overseas is complemented by country-specific General Merchandise websites.
Plan A, our ethical and environmental programme, underpins everything we do, from sourcing responsibly and reducing waste to helping the communities in which we operate. It is a business plan that maps out our route to providing leadership in a world that's increasingly resource-constrained and experiencing social change.
