People and Business: M&S's bouncer
Wednesday 19 May 1999
Just why M&S's press advisers, Brunswick, decided to hire the bouncers to man the doors was a mystery to journos. Irate shareholders at annual meetings, OK, but who's going to cause a hullabaloo at a press conference?
A spokeswoman insisted: "Its just routine security. We weren't expecting any trouble and we didn't get any." The bouncers were also there to safeguard the journos' bags, she added.
All very odd. Following the announcement of M&S's near-halving of profits, one wag mused; were the bouncers there to keep riff-raff out, or to keep the M&S managers from doing a runner?
