Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Bournemouth based Beales department stores at risk of collapse.

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

HMV continues to be volatile, closing more stores this month due to landlord issues. If Sunrise Records can't make the business viable, then I think it's finally game over for a business reliant on physical media sales. As for Argos, their issues at Christmas were down to axing their traditional 3 ...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

I’m putting all the chain Italian restaurants in the “negative outlook” category. I don’t think the bloodshed of 2019 is nearly over yet, and there’s still about a million of them. Carluccios has started widely discounting now too, which they never used to do. I agree with you. there is too much co...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Time I think for my "Who to watch in 2020" post. Winners: TESCO - Strong Christmas period, but more changes to come. Greggs - All staff to receive a share of £7m bonus. Next - generally doing well. The German discounters - as normal. Primark - offers more than just clothes now, it's the experience. ...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Just spoken to someone who's on holiday with Thomas Cook. Looks like they have been prepared for the worst. Also likely that the company will collapse and that the board meeting is just a formality.

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Circa 4500 jobs to go in Metro formats as part of simplification (my guess many will turn into express) Also 134 Express stores to have their opening hours cut. Stock routines to be simplified as well (less products in shop warehouses) As usual press informed before staff. https://www.dailymail.co.u...

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]...
