THE LAURA ASHLEY BROADMOOR COLLECTION
Carphone Warehouse also DEAD.
I’m more surprised that Laura Ashley was still kicking about
Carphone warehouse actually did have some good deals, even if it was like stepping in to a car dealership
I think they're just closing their standalone stores rather than being properly dead.
Indeed. Ours closed a couple of years back and I guessed it was long gone everywhere.
In a strange reversal of usual practice, it’s turned into quite a successful pub now.
Ours still existed and had been in the same place for as long as I can remember. Always a sale on. Not necessarily for me, but they had some cute stuff.
54 of 70 YO! Sushi branches will permanently close from now due to Coronavirus.
That’s both shocking and a disaster. I presumed they were doing really well.
Considering what a mind boggling mark up they have on actual Japanese food, I was surprised
what’s next?! Pizza Express went too, Eurovision... if Nando’s goes then I don’t know what I’ll do
Mind you, I guess Yo Sushi have airport branches that can’t be doing too well now?
Do they still make Corona lemonade?
Wow. That's disaster recovery measures - keep a small number of stores and rebuild from there.
Where did you see this? I couldn't find it this morning...but then I guess no one is reporting ANYTHING
I always find Yo Sushi a bit overpriced for what it is
I think it was hidden away in a Guardian live blog.
Oh Yo Sushi is VERY overpriced, but they usually accept Blue Light card or the suchlike, which means my other half as an NHS worker gets 50% off, and makes it really good value.
The sushi itself is ok rather than great, but that's what you get with a chain.
I hope my "local" (not local but where I go to cinema) stays. It's always packed and I quite often get takeaway.
Pizza Express still exists.
I'm not mad about it. It's nice if I'm in a shopping centre or wherever but there's none nearby and I don't feel like I'm missing out.
oh really? That’s good, I was partial to a Fiorentina.
they were in the shit though, right? I remember the outpouring of sympathy to SuRie
Oh yes... I think... they got saved.
I have to wonder how much money they can lose when they serve dough balls for the best part of a fiver
If pizza express folded, they'd be calzone express.
I'll get my coat.
And where do you think you're going?
Fuck me, has it come to this? Go and self-isolate for a week and think about what you've just done.
you should get your hazmat suit
A hideous company, but obviously bad news for the employees.
Carluccio also dead.
Cath Kidston nearly DEAD
Isn't DEBENHAMS pretty much DEAD too?
Cath Kidston so soon after Laura Ashley? Where on earth will I buy a floral apron now?
Where will I buy my mother overpriced gifts?
I'm sure they'll stay online.
Yes. That will be another MASSIVE gap in most high streets.
I will be sad about Debenhams
Twitter being very mean about Cath Kidston. It'll be one of our favourite retailers soon enough. After all, do you think HMV will survive empty stores for 3 months?
