Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

What is JKDerry exactly? He writes these long posts where he seems to make out he knows what he's on about but it largely seems to be stuff he's read on TV Forum reworded into endless, repeating posts. You'd almost think he used to work in TV but I don't think he has and he's just making assumption...

Greggs have stopped putting the bit of plastic on top of a single doughnut to please Greta Thunberg. The problem is now the icing sticks to the paper bag and rips off :(

Also worth noting that many of the CAA chartered flights have been crewed by former Thomas Cook staff who have worked for free to get passengers home.
Why would they not be paid by the CAA?

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

I wonder if they will keep it entirely separate, as I can not imagine Jack Wills being sold in Sports Direct, or indeed any Sports Direct stuff sold in a Jack Wills.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

They've got a few WHSmith in disguise brands for train station cafes too. Books and Stationers Ltd appears to be a wholly owned subsidiary of WHSmith High Street Holdings Ltd - ie the owner of all the non-travel stores. Not sure why they'd have some stores in a separate trading company, unless they...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Does anyone know anything about ‘Books & Stationers Limited’, it seems to be a company that runs some WHSmith stores. I note this from a receipt I got from WHS where the info on the back makes no reference to WHSmith and even gives a customer service email address customer.[email protected]...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

There are 4 Boots in Leeds city centre with an additional standalone Opticians on top. So although the media will paint it as if they are practically leaving the high street, they could leave the big one, the railway station one, and close 3 branches, and thats just in one city. The same goes for Ar...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

The former owner of Poundworld has started in the last few weeks opening his new venture “One Below”

He plans to have 100 branches by the end of the year, in most cases in former Poundworld stores.

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

I think the decision to close 363 Oxford Street is all we need to know as regards to how long HMV will last this time. Granted, despite media reports to the contrary HMV hasn't been there for almost a hundred years; they buggered off from that site in 2000 and only moved back there in 2013 as part ...
