Just read in the paper that Yorkshire and Cyldesdale Banks are being rebranded as Virgin Money.
This was announced, widely reported and discussed here a year ago.
"Could be the end of the brands" - that's speculation. The fact it's actually happening is new news.

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

That certainly explains why the Debenhams board would rather take the chain into administration than let Ashley have it!

So much for the reprieve. Hull House of Fraser is closing after all.

I think you’ve made the case for why they haven’t closed one down yet.
They're keeping a clearly unnecessary store open to prevent a competitor moving in?

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

You'd think they'd have closed one down in that case. That's what happened in Hull's North Point Shopping Centre - the Alliance (formerly Selles) became Boots, and the smaller Boots closed down (it became Co-Op Pharmacy).

So what's the thinking behind putting Jack's branded stuff in Tesco's entrance promo asile? I'm hardly going to buy some, think "this ain't too bad" and then drive to Leeds to stock up?
I wouldn't be surprised if some of those products are identical to the Tesco own brand ones.

Re: The Co-op Thread

When will The Co-Operative Bank rebrand, I wonder? It's no longer owned by the Co-Op, and is still using the old generic branding.
