This April Liz Bundock, manager of M&Co’s Orpington store, celebrated 25 years’ service with the company.
Gravesend resident Liz began her career in retail at the age of 14 with a Saturday job in her hometown’s market, before working at Marks & Spencer, Debenhams and as Promotions & Personality Girl for the Evening Post. She joined M & Co’s Peckham store as manager in 1993 before coming to head up M & Co Orpington a couple of years later.
Over her years working in Orpington Liz says she has seen a lot of changes in the town as well as in retail in general.
“We have weathered some tough times for the industry, but we have a huge and loyal customer base in Orpington. I have a terrific team here with me who are all local girls, most of them have been with the company over 10 years. M & Co is a lovely company to work for and they really do put family at the heart of everything they do.”
The clothing chain recently celebrated its 50th birthday and remains family run despite growing to almost 300 stores and employing over 3,900 people.
You can visit M & Co at 39 – 47 The Walnuts Shopping Centre.
