Re: Another High Street Rebrand

It'll be interesting to see how they roll things out to the smaller stores. One of their perennial problems has always been that signage is designed for big stores and then rammed into the tiny high street pharmacies.

Re: Front door legalities

In Glasgow, tenements were traditionally numbered with a floor/position designation, so if you were first floor, second from the left, you'd be flat 1/2. Not ½. In Edinburgh, this is still the case and the council uses this system for identifying properties for council tax, parking permits etc and ...

Re: Front door legalities

are you sure it's a legal requirement to display your house number? Oh you don't have to display one. It's more displaying a potentially "inaccurate" one that's the issue.

Front door legalities

So, here's a random one. I live in a building that happens to have an unusual street number. Let's say my address is 10A Station Road. To emphasise, the entire building is 10A, it then has flat numbers. Now when the place was built in the 1920s, the style was to call such buildings as number and a h...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

We've got a Boots in a retail park that has had its pharmacy application turned down. Which is deeply annoying as you have to use either the pharmacy with the tiny car park up a big hill, or the god awful city centre branch with the slowest service and rudest staff imaginable.

That's really really nice. Will be interesting to see if they get rid of any of the VAG branding at the same time

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

the main issue, to my mind, with Boots branding is those awful overly large VAG Rounded signs inside. The font looks so tired, especially on the lorries with the uninspiring colour scheme.

They really need to get rid of their obsession with 3 for 2 as well and move towards an EDLP model.
