This is an unbelievable piece of bad news for Honiton town and a decision that smacks of short term-ism by Sir Stewart Rose, the CEO and chairman of Marks and Spencer.Even on a cold Wednesday afternoon, with an empty High Street, the M&S store was busy with at least 20 customers shopping. If M&S go, with the recent loss of Woolworths and a few other stores in the town, Honiton could become a ghost town. I hope that you can try to whip up some much needed support to try to save M&S - Honiton badly needs this quality food store. Rob Coleman Wick, Honiton
