Looks all good, apart from the last image. I think the light boxes and foliage look quite dated. Also, those leaves will look even worse when they are inevitably covered in dust.
Dust was my first thought too. I have a feeling they're real plants though as this store in particular is going for an eco-friendly vibe.
They'll be dead within 2 years then.

Not sure if that's better or worse than the plastic'y shit that was popular in food courts in the 90s.
I was going to say, it looks very Wimpy early 90s.

Nothing beats St Davids Cardiff in the 1980s.

Couldn't beat a fake plant and a water feature in a shopping centre in the 90s!

I wonder how Jezza ended up using the version of the logo used between 1998 and 2000?

I’m not sure it’s fair to expect their US operation to pay UK taxes.

So that appears to be all the major brands now moved over, Corn Flakes, Crunchy Nut, Rice Krispies, Frosties, All Bran. Now it's just the more niche cereals. The implementation has actally been better than the original mockups, they are more distinguishable from one another and really stand out on the shelves.

Nando's meanwhile have changed all their crockery and introduced new style sauce bottles. The new plates are actually great and really make the food look better than the older ones. Didn't realise how dated they were until the new ones appeared.

One issue however is they are now storing their perinaise in the fridge, which means that the relatively soft chips tend to snap. Poor user experience.

Does anyone know anything about ‘Books & Stationers Limited’, it seems to be a company that runs some WHSmith stores.

I note this from a receipt I got from WHS where the info on the back makes no reference to WHSmith and even gives a customer service email address [email protected]ioners.co.uk

They've got a few WHSmith in disguise brands for train station cafes too.
