Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Noticeable how a lot of the themed chains owned by wider companies seem to have struggled in the past couple of years (see also Frankie & Benny’s and Chiquito etc). Not a fan of Nando’s myself but I think they’ve shaken things up by making it something resembling an authentic experience visiting the...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

It went through a boring patch about transmitters etc that I find incredibly dull, but it’s picked up again with memories being shared about sub-regional splits etc.

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

People hugely underestimate how much money businesses are losing right now. Pretty much the entire hospitality industry has no revenue coming in, but still has rent and bills to pay along with the wages of anyone not furloughed (as all will need some employees still working - those who work the soci...

The favourite itv region thread has certainly taken a dull turn.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I have to admit, I’m almost impressed at the usual suspects trying to derail the Election 2010 thread with posts about US elections, and the NBC / Sky thread with completely unrelated Spanish-language news channel videos.

Re: NHS Clapping

We’ve had fireworks every week here. I don’t mind it too much where I am as there are a few hospitals nearby and therefore quite a few healthcare workers to hear it.

Re: Intu takeover called off

Out of curiosity after driving past it last night, I had a look on Intu’s website to see if the Trafford Centre was open, and it is, but only for the M&S Foodhall, Holland & Barrett and Vision Express.
