It wasn't a church but a "tall building to represent industry", according to their history page. https://www.nationwide.co.uk/about-us/our-history/

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Killingworth is a surprise - Poundland used to have a store right opposite Wilko, which had closed at some point before I was last down at that end of the centre a few months ago. Seems odd that they're going to open up again a few metres away, although it's a much bigger unit so I suppose they'll w...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

They are different products but it's the change to the Seabrook logo I was talking about.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Seabrook crisps with one of those rebrands that's so similar (yet strips out some of the character) you wonder why they bother.

Re: Windows 9 is now Windows 10

And how the heck do you switch it off? I've tried Googling but all I get is ways of switching other things on and off. I've also hunted through the Edge settings but, again, can't find anything. Any help gratefully received. This thing, you mean? https://up.metropol247.co.uk/042023/1682695040_83302...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

The Waitrose everyone seems to forget about in Eldon Sq bus station is closing soon, however. Whuuuut? That's a shame, and weird - I've never been in there without there being an enormous queue. But maybe that's because there's lots of people buying a few items each, like I always am, and because p...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

And for reasons that I'm sure make sense to somebody, they're using two different logos.

Re: Night Owls to end

That's a shame but seemed inevitable when it was bumped from Metro.

My sister called in a couple of months ago and got a text last week asking if she'd like to talk to Alan again, so they must have been struggling for callers (and listeners, presumably).

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Well, the plot thickens! Looks like Ireland actually has the new logo, Fanta branding and the "pineapple and grapefruit" design from the mid-noughties version! I assume they must never have rebranded back from that design when the UK did, and this has been carried over rather than brought ...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Noticed yesterday that Lilt is now "by Fanta". Feels like this is either a stepping stone to it becoming Fanta Pineapple & Grapefruit or one of those branding moves that'll be reversed in six months' time. Pretty uninspiring design, and definitely doesn't scream "totally tropical&...
