Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Looks like Poundland are running these shops with a very light touch rebranding: https://www.sloughobserver.co.uk/news/23824921.wilko-reopens-poundland-today-maidenhead-high-street/ I imagine it's temporary but I expected them to close and put their normal fit out(which isn't especially elaborate) ...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

The very first post in this thread is about Next changing their logo from NEXT to next in 2007. These signs were put up yesterday so they are going back to the capitalised logo. I've not seen it on their website or social media yet. https://up.metropol247.co.uk/Bob/next2kdy.jpg It's being rolled ou...

Re: The power of words

We've seen over the last 30 years word become weaponised and others lose their meaning as societal attitudes have changed. There's one word I absolutely hate though and I was wondering if it's just me. The "n" word is horrific and shocking to me but so is the "q" word (for gay p...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Waitrose aren't happy about Asda adopting a range with Essentials in the name: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-60862940 Weird choice having the 'ASDA' lettering huge and the 'just essentials' lettering tiny. Like M Savers mk1 I'm not sure it's clear enough that it's the budget tier rather than t...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Judging by the statements made by some landlords, Wilko are announcing the closures and negotiating afterwards. I find Wilko a very useful store but I'm often frustrated at the frequency my local store (Cardiff City Centre) switches its departments around meaning it takes an eternity to find things....

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Weekly shoppers saving £200 a year really doesn't sound much to me. A couple of quid a week. With Clubcard Prices it seems like you could save a lot more.

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Asda's new advertising is much improved since the takeover. They've ditched that embarrassing "ASDA Superfan" campaign (if you can even call it that) and it's finally clicked that the Asda Price pocket tapping was the strongest messaging they ever had. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnWUY...
