Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Just walked past Bank branch of HoF (City of London) looking shabby and bleak, but littered with dozens of Closing Down 20% Off posters lovingly created in the Simpsons font.

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Bath could still close as well. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-45617809 And here's some fine journalism from the Hull Daily Mail... they called it rumours and speculation despite closing down signs on the shop windows! https://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/news/hull-east-yorkshire-news/landlord-hulls...

First major rebranding since the 80s, surely? Apart from getting rid of the stylised D in the mid-90s anyway.
Font was different in the 80s. The old logo was introduced in 1992.
