Marks and Spencer to open store in Ukraine

From the Financial Times, Jan. 24, 2006.  by Sophy Buckley.  Found on Action Ukraine Report, #647
 
LONDON -Marks and Spencer, the high street retailer, will shortly have
more than 200 international franchise stores, five years after it said it was
withdrawing from its lossmaking European operations.

This year it expects to open its first store in Ukraine and at least one
more in Moscow, where it already has two with FYBA Group, its
franchise partner.

M&S is also looking to open up shops in Switzerland and expects to
announce its franchise partner there before the spring.
