The shop near me which opened as M&S Simply Food before rebranding to M&S Foodhall a few years ago has had all its signs taken down and changed again. It’s now M&S Food.

The website’s store finder still has the original name, because changing a name in a database is infinitely more challenging than blocking pavements for days, hiring cherry pickers and changing lighted external signage.

the Costa in Liverpool Street Station is getting a refurb, and they've uncovered what I believe is the pre-Whitbread signage:

Lilt has finally been axed as a brand, now subsumed into Fanta as "Fanta Pineapple and Grapefruit". Coca-Cola is promising nothing has changed to the flavour of the drink.

SCS have rebranded with a new logo. Their adverts are significantly calmed down with a softer colour palette - no more over-the-top voiceovers or dramatic sale events it seems.

I wonder how that will work with Pepsi Max - it'd be a shame to see that name dropped for (what looks to be a rather bland) Zero Sugar.
