Mamas and Papas has just been in and straight out of administration. Half a dozen store closures.

Blimey.
In amongst all this, I missed the news that Mothercare sold the Early Learning Centre to The Entertainer earier this year - which is good because their own brand toys are generally pretty good. I think I'll maybe keep an eye out for some discounted Little Bird stuff in the closing down sale though.

I didn't realise they had such a large business overseas (which is unaffected).

All is not well at Eddie Stobart

Might be worth mentioning that the lorry business is separate from Stobart Group, who are in the air, rail and infrastructure business.
