Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

For a good few months the place really seems to have taken a turn for the worse. A handful of times since I left I've had a browse for any glimmers of hope but it just feels a such an ugly environment to me now.

Re: Intu takeover called off

Derby, St. Davids and the Arndale are fine for what they are too - although there does seem to be a strong correlation between how 'intu'y' a centre is and how crap it is, I agree.. It's more the role retail plays in a city centre atmosphere which is changing, and I'm not sure any of them are ready...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I have absolutely no interest in returning to the forum as a contributor but I did recently check up on the bunch of white men moaning about people objecting to the use of blackface in Little Britain.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

One of the things I can’t understand is face coverings... I assume WHO and the government are just going along with telling people to wear them for psychology reasons only? I mean, surely if you can smell the fart which came from the man standing in front you through your face covering, it is going...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Was watching this video from John Lewis and thinking how much POS will need to be updated if they do reduce the social distancing to 1 metre. Some signage people must be doing a decent trade right now. although I suppose all the usual work has dried up. Thinking of getting into the "sticky stuff re...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I think it's amazing that Brekkie thinks that blackface was no more acceptable in 2003 than it is now - quite clearly it was. I think for a long time the general consensus in the UK was that blackface was defined as The Black & White Minstrel Show and that's it. That was the line not to cross. Poss...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Superdrug has its own standalone beauty concept called Beauty Studio. I'm not sure how widespread they are but there's one in Cardiff.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Yes I prefer what they've done with the logo. It has a more high end feel about it. Like something you'd see on those overpriced 80% chocolate bars.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Cadbury is getting a new look, apparently being rolled out in Australia first:

There are 2 Sainsburys Locals within walking distance of me. 1 is closed and boarded up. The other last week changed to a Budgens. Very strange.
Whereabouts? Stores sold to Samy Ltd I expect.
