Looks like BHS may be going soon as well:
Even the cafés?
BHS Café DEAD will be the saddest day ever on Moopy
We lost our BHS to a Primark. I did wonder if it was a sign of things to come.
I actually like BHS. Socks and underwear wise it beats M&S hands down for price and quality.
Oh what a shame. BHS is always one of my first ports of call when I am looking for a present for my mum for something.
BHS Café possibly DEAD
BHS (almost) DEAD
Biggest since Woolworths collapsed, surely?
JJB and Comet may have been bigger.
If BHS goes down that will definitely be the most significant since Woolies.
Really not happy about this one.
BHS closed down here a few years ago, but there is a furniture & homeware store on a retail park a short walk from Ikea. It's never very busy and everything always seems to be on special offer.
I care not for BHS. Not going to shed tears.
It's a dreadful shop, that somehow manages to sell almost everything, and yet nothing you'd actually want.
BHS Café possibly DEAD
BHS filing for administration on Monday. GUTTED.
I can't remember the last time I saw a BHS, let alone shopped in one.
Ours closed a few months ago, replaced by an as yet unopened Primark. The Christmas section is useful as fuck and I used them for SLIPPERS.
They did have a bit of the Woolies about them in the sense they were the jack of all trades, yet none at all.
BHS always had good sales and Voucher Code offers. Plus they gave me triple points on my rewards scheme credit card. They have Dorothy Perkins and a few other useful basic high street brands within the stores too. The underwear they do is 10x better quality than M&S which has an appalling range.
I'm amazed that it's even still going. The Oxford Street branch is particularly WORTHLESS AND VILE
I always thought it was an unusual purchase by Phillip Green, when his empire was trendy High Street fashion, not nighties and lighting.
A friend of mine once claimed that BHS is lovely for lamps
I'll be the judge of THAT
There are two pretty large branches here, one of which is on Sauchiehall Street which is just going to make it even more desolate than before (it's had a massive problem with retailers closing in favour of nearby shopping centres in the past few years).
I can't say I shopped in BHS very often, but they were alright for stuff like cheap T-shirts to wear under other clothes (I know that sounds like an insult but that's genuinely what I would buy there )
Why would ANYWHERE have two BHS?!
Oh that demand for things to wear under other clothes () is THROUGH THE ROOF!
In Glasgow, I guess it's essential.
I just INVEST HARD at Primark for plain tees.
The other one is in a shopping centre, and BHS was clearly so in vogue in the early nineties that one side of the centre was essentially purpose built to house it. They'll probably have to do quite a bit of work carving the space into smaller units, because I can't see anyone else wanting the whole thing.
I honestly can't think of anything I've bought at BHS in the last twenty years apart from a SOFT TOY during a particularly dark era
Along with C&A, BHS was everything circa 1990. It really does represent that terribly gaudy era of dark oak corner glass shelve cabinets and floral front room prints.
I bought some NICE WINE GLASSES in the sale a while ago but they've gone all CLOUDY in the DISHWASHER
I hope you learned your lesson.
It's a bit of a pisser for me...
I have enormo-feet and the BHS on Sauchiehall Street has a small Evans concession where I can peacefully buy shoes with some success. I will now have to haul my ass down to the actual Evans in amongst all the chubbers and I'm NOT happy.
They used to have a genuinely quite lovely home store in Bath, many years ago. Their central Bristol shop is horrid though. You'd think you were in post WWII Britain.
Didn't know it was still going.
I'm in town today and am tempted to nip into the BHS CAFÉ for old times' sake. Not that I've EVER dined there but still
To be honest I've lived here for three years now and have never even heard of it/seen one.
For a while my mum used to meet up with her sisters at the BHS Café, and I always had to stifle a laugh whenever she'd mention it
I recently went to the sumptuous Debenhams Café on a day of what was obviously internal turmoil. God that bun was DRY
Oh, and one of the branches here has an actual BHS RESTAURANT in it, which I think is a proper holdover from the nineties going by the state of it. There are also gents' toilets where all the locks have been removed from the cubicle doors, so I can only imagine it was some sort of cottaging hotspot in the past.
Oh God imagine going cottaging in BHS after you've bought your linens and panda slippers
This was in Edinburgh. Absolutely shameless!!
There's a nice BHS home in the bit of the Trafford Center nobody goes to.
