Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

I took a photo of one to show you just how basic it is. https://up.metropol247.co.uk/Whataday/Screenshot%202019-04-09%20at%208_27_07%20PM.png This doesn't really suggest the sophisticated advertising for which the slogan is known. Just realised these bags are now history, for which I am thankful. T...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

There's still enough good stuff there to keep me returning I agree, I particularly liked the recent set design and lighting thread. Also, some of the international presentation and classics threads interest me as it's obviously a quiet time for new presentation over here, and in general. I just don...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Imagine thinking that the “Fridays” part of the name is the recognisable bit and not “TGI”. Baffling. The whole thing is laughable. They say they wanted to be “shorter, sharper and more contemporary ”, then state that "playful" copy has been introduced for the brand’s tone of voice. This includes c...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Interesting drama playing out at Travelodge. As part of the CVA recently approved by landlords, Travelodge will get a significant rent reduction on properties for the forseeable. It has already refused to pay any rent for three months during lockdown. However, many of the property owners negotiated ...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

At the start, I was thinking everyone was looking and judging the style/design/colour of my mask anyway.

I noticed some of the bus operators let you print off a self-declared exemption card you can show to the driver (if you want), but I don't think other people are really all that bothered.

Re: Wave FM becomes Pure Radio

the standard slick yet bland Bauer station. I saw this on Twitter , and very much made me think of Pete's comment. As for Robin Galloway, I don't know how he does it either. You'd have thought the wind-up shtick would've run its course by now. https://twitter.com/MarcJBirch/status/1284185233890390016

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

The face coverings thing reminded me a bit of the smoking ban. A lot of fuss in the papers before it happened, all sorts of predictions of non-compliance etc. but in fact when the day arrived, the vast majority of people just quietly got on with it.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Nearly everyone wearing face masks in shops when I was out and about today (as we should now up here). Lots of adjusting and face-touching going on though. May take a little getting used to.

Still felt odd being welcomed into the bank with my black mask on, and only my eyes showing...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Thinking about this further, if someone tests positive, informs the pub and then they get in touch with everyone who went that day... what then? Does everyone who went that day have to self isolate for 2 weeks? The place I gave my contact details to don't have a record of when I left so how do they...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

One of the best things to come out of all of this is the fact IKEA now let you take your trolley load of stuff across the car park, freeing you from the penned in pick-up area. Much easier if you're shopping solo. That said, I went in an hour before closing and it still felt a bit crowded in some pa...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

The C4 programme stuck in my mind too. Store managers were crying out to head office for homewares and toiletries that were good sellers - but instead got sent random junk in their deliveries, including masses and masses of Pontefract cakes that were going out of date (seen as a 'good deal' by the b...
