    Actually still think BHS are likely but I'm going to change my prediction to...Laura Ashley.

    They changed their returns policy last year, nobody answers them when you call the main number (at all) and they've constantly got sales these days. More often than DFS. They'll be next.

    Hope not as there is one that is just in walking distance from my place. I buy all my DIY stuff from them. (I have no car).

    They probably only have to sell two miniatures a month to cover the rent.

    I don't want to know how kentmonkey has intimate knowledge about the sales department of a woman's clothing shop.

    All those bloody cash 4 gold shops when the gold price drops.


    Plus Dave and George's wonderful recovry plan will bring about 100% employment again resulting in no more need for bloody payday loan sharks... I meant pay day loan shops.


    /have been drinking whiskey so last suggestion may be a bit silly.

    I have a wife...honest.

    No actually it was for curtains and wallpaper in one of their aforementioned sales. We had problems with them.

    If you Google Laura Ashley you get shitloads of people complaining, more than any company I've ever seen, about the quality of their product. Chairs coming with the material not meeting at the back. Sofa's collapsing within a few days. "washable" material coming off with a damp cloth. They're still charging premium prices but seemingly getting the product made on the cheap. They won't be around long.

    GAME (again).

    or WH Smiths. Yes, I know they're all over the place but their main stock of trade (especially at the smaller airport/railway outlets) are books, magazines and newspapers. Aka all the things that will end up on digital distribution via tablets and phones within the next few years.

    Also, all those bus/train/airport outlets... they don't own them and the rent is much higher there than on the high street.

    Not sure how Sock Shop is still alive however. Or tie rack.

    They are terrible. Not only over priced but have far too many staff. Non of which are attentive.

    Tried to buy a couple of 500ml soft drinks and stood at the counter 4 people were behind and it took them over a minute to notice me. I was just about to put them back and walk out.

    You'ld be surprised how often little old ladies leave money to charity in their wills.

    Plus charities tend to have some rather attractive tax breaks on their side.
