I've been contacted by a guy from LBi who are running a marketing campaign for Marks and Spencer. He made me aware that M&S now offer international delivery and wondered if I would mind blogging or tweeting about it. For all you fellow British Expats, M&S are currently running a survey where you have a chance to win a £250 gift card. The survey is available at - http://www.marksandspencer.com/gp/node/n/206905031.
Unfortunately, the one thing I do miss about M&S - their food - is of course one of the things that isn't included in international delivery. I appreciate the impracticalities of achieving this. What I say is - forget about delivery, open up a Food store in Brisbane, there's definitely a market for it. There's nothing here that can compete in terms of luxury convenience food. If you can open up stores in Gibraltar and Singapore, why not Australia?
I've done a quick survey of a few expats and it seems quite a lot of the women are missing the M&S trouser-suits. With a £20 delivery charge to Australia though, and after taking into account the exchange rate and relative incomes over, you would have to really love M&S clothing to go for international delivery!
