Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

The branch of Leon in Spitalfields Market has a repossession notice in the window and is permanently closed. Is that normal for a medium sized fast food chain owned by a large retailer?!

Interesting to see that they based it on French hypermarkets. I fe...
