Marks & Spencer has implemented a raft of measures to help suppliers ride out disruption during the coronavirus outbreak.
Marks & Spencer, which asked all its suppliers to stop production a day after the UK went into lockdown, will pay according to its standard terms for products shipped before March 24.
M&S is also paying for all made garments for the vast majority of orders – amounting to 95% of the retailer’s product spend – yet to be shipped by that date, the exceptions being for niche lines or to tertiary suppliers.
