Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

They'd be bloody massive Sports Directs, even the smaller sites. The flagship Oxford Circus Sports Direct is massive at I think 4 floors and they manage to pack it all out with a huge range of products so I wouldn't be too surprised if they tried out bumper sized stores elsewhere. Which was of cour...

Re: The Tesco & Other non-Morrisons Supermarket Thread

Tesco now recruiting for 'mystery new format' stores. Apparently they will be run as a separate operation from the rest of their store estate.
