Stop M&S reintroducing piped music!

Marks and Spencer, which two years ago decided to stop piped music after years of mounting protests,  is ‘trialling’ piped music in 35 stores around Britain. As such trials are sometimes carried out by agents of the piped music industry itself, and anyway will not count all the shoppers who turn on  their heels the moment they hear piped music, the results will probably be very skewed.  M&S is presumably desperate to reverse the fall in sales afflicting every High Street chain, but this is a commercially suicidal move that will drive away more shoppers than it will attract. It will also affect millions of people with hearing and other problems besides, upsetting many of their own staff.  If you only make one protest this year, make M&S your target.  Write in cogent protest (citing facts from the Fact Sheet) to their CEO Steve Rowe.
