This would be a really useful shop if it actually had any food in it. Since the euphoria of the first day (maybe it was the free champagne), the shelves seem to be practically empty every time I go in.

Yes....it still seems to be waiting for the inflow of tennats at the new RBS HQ above before stocking takes on any useful meaning...very dissapointing. Even the mad cram that is the London Bridge sation store is better than this.

The stock levels seem variable, but on my three visits so far have been fine. Is the new RBS HQ going to be on Bankside? I thought it was just going to be a kind of outhouse for RBS IT and they were going to use the ABN buildings near Liverpool St as their showcase offices....

From next week M&S is cutting back its hours, opening an hour later during the week (8am) and trimming an hour from both ends of the day on Saturdays (9 till 7).

This shop becomes ever more pointless....it really is never very well stocked at all.

Not sure how well it is stocked around lunch time, but its certainly not very useful if you would like to do your evening shop there (as I would, since it is basically on the way home).

"I thought it was just going to be a kind of outhouse for RBS IT..."

That's correct, the move is going to be Q1 next year, with most IT staff moving there. Traders remain in 135 and 280 bishopsgate. Not sure who is going to the ABN office though.

HQ is actually in Edinburgh :)

My husband refuses to enter this M&S anymore due to a certain Security guard who always takes an overly keen interest in his shopping trip.He follows him around every time, unnerving him so much that he just walks out again,well that's the excuse that I'm given when he comes home without the milk !
Hubby has actually complained to the Manager who said that he'd have a word with the guard,but he doesn't want to try shopping there again,poor lamb is clearly traumatised.

YES!! the M&S stalker..he is soooooooo obvious and so lacking subtlety! he seems to be fixated on middle-aged men!!

I think the guy's just bored. Probably desperate for someone to inch something so he can put his specialist skills into action.
