There's the potential to have concessions/co-branded stores with O2 in the longer-term, once their merger completes.

With IKEA reopening stores in England this week, they decided to close Coventry already, which was planned to close in the summer anyway.

East London bakery chain Ingles (who only recently had a smart rebrand from Percy Ingle) is apparently closing down - internet rumours vary between over the next 6 weeks and by the end of the year.

Why is Sports Direct's website saying there's no stores within 20 miles of Hull? There's two in Hull (one on Kingswood and one in the city centre). They'd better not have decided not to reopen them!
