Marks and Spencer (M&S) was founded in Leeds in 1894 by Michael Marks and Thomas Spencer.

Marks, a polish immigrant began 'Marks Penny Bazaar' in Hartlepool and in 1884 moved to Leeds where he set up a market stall. Thomas Spencer joined him in 1894 when they set up 'Marks and Spencer'.

M&S are primarily known for selling clothing and food, where for many years they sold both under their own labels. There are still the largest clothing retailer in the UK.
