Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Topshop/Man in Westfield Stratford is closing in February. Seems mad that a major, busy store in one of the country's most important shopping centres is closing.

I wish BM11 didn't feel the need to repost everything he sees on Twitter that might have a tiny bit of relevance to the discussion.

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread
