Yes I would think so. There is a Lidl in close competition but would imagine every member of hospital staff, every visitor and even patients themselves are regular customers. Handy and healthy three for £10 meals ready in minutes from the microwave exactly what everybody needs when returning home. Well done Marks.

All hospitals are franchises. Easy money for M&S.

Glasgow Super Hospital food branch

Extremely healthy takings - not sure if the premises are leased or a percentage of the turnover goes to the hospital. The grapes and raspberries are great but not as good as Percy Pigs - nearly 25 years old. There's life in the old dog yet.

Thanks costa. That's very encouraging and I'm also sure this good English summer weather is helping with food sales too, as people picnic and BBQ more too. Which is good for mks food and drink products.

Hi Both,

Saw some very interesting information regarding this company today. Though LFL was down in Q1, June was up in clothing. They also have this one last quarter where they are not LFL on sales vs last year. Believe that they had one in Aug/Sep last year that is not there this year. After that clothing will be LFL with 4 sales per year at same time. Womens wear probably still biggest concern but other areas have all started to see growth on LFL basis. Cost base is under control too so looking like will deliver good half year profits. Think the shorters in this one may get burnt if they remain much longer. I still have target at 414 and afetr seeing today information have no doubt that it is achievable and company turnaround will continue and start to gather momentum.

GL all and DYOR etc.

In Marble Arch store today. A Sale but pretty quiet and dull. The dreary supermarket floor tiles at the entrance say everything. A chain store from the past that fancies itself with high prices and wonders where the younger .customers are. Will they ever come here? Hopefully, come September things will improve

Morning Fruitster,

Funny you should say that about the food - I was thinking the same thing but Mrs C said they have changed the £10 food offering with new items included and are bringing in new ranges atm - Mrc C brought home some MKS Tutti Frutti grapes yesterday for herself as I don't particularly like grapes, I find them watery and tasteless - I ended up eating nearly the whole lot!! - incredible, best grapes I have ever had !!

Hi carrington

Agree entirely.

The positive is both you and I from reading from previous BBw have traded this well too selling percentage of our holding around 355/360 and then again around 380/395.

I must admit I did re buy at 350 again on drop (premature with hindsight) and then again yest at 324.

Same time our holdings recd nice divi payments.

Clearly anything below 330p with current sustained dividend and no profit warning that hasn't happened is for me a great purchase.

Additionally the brand and everything mns is quality and efficient and it for me the sp is cheap with no growth or increased profit margin. Yet results are indicating profits are in line with guidance and what with steve and Archie being in control, im very optimistic as they are retailers understanding great product and service at right price to make some nice profits for the company.

There is one caveat for me and it's small detail. Although I think mns food is great they do need a little refresh of the food line, to keep it mns "food porn" and fresh and exciting for the consumer. Bit like apple do with there phones always upgrading and refreshing, where mns has not been as quick recently, coming up with innovative new food ideas as quick as they use to be.

Evening Fruitster

I have already nominated my dividend for reinvestment - I think MKS are going to do well long term - as money gets tight people will stop going out for meals and buy the MKS meal deal and as more retail goes out of business MKS will mop up some of the floating customers - MKS can drive down the purchase price and negate the currency fluctuation against sterling through sheer economies of scale which other retailers will struggle to do - clothing is also starting to look more positive so all in all I am pretty optimistic going forward.
