Llandudno’s M&S team manager celebrates 25-year work anniversary

ANDREW Kenyon, team manager at Marks & Spencer in Llandudno, is celebrating his 25th year working for the high-street retailer.

Andrew decided to join the team in 1997 as a summer fixed-term worker, and has not looked back since.

From working behind the scenes as a warehouse manager, to returning to be the food team manager, his transition in roles across the store has enabled him to advance his skills from on-the-ground assistance, to directing a whole team.

He has also kept M&S Llandudno in the family, with his wife and two daughters working in the same store.

Andrew said: “My favourite thing about working at M&S is the people.

“I get to meet so many different people from customers to colleagues and it’s a real family atmosphere.

“We’ve had customers who have been shopping with us for many years whom we know by name and often have a chat about how they are doing.

“The last 25 years have been such a great experience.

“Most recently, I was part of the setup of moving to our new Llandudno store, which has been a great success, and something we’re all very proud of.”

To celebrate his 25th anniversary, Andrew’s colleagues organised a surprise celebration to congratulate and thank him for all of his hard work.

Katie Whelan, store manager at M&S Llandudno, added: “Andy and his family have become such an integral part of M&S Llandudno that I can’t imagine the place without them.

“Andy is attentive and charming towards his customers and always comes in with a smile on his face – we can’t wait to celebrate his next big anniversary!”
