Yeah its also like comparing Tesco's to Spar, Tesco buys in bulk and so can sell cheaper.
Safeway Plc. was bought out by Morrisons. Morrisons bit off more than they could chew, and are dragging the stores back to the nineteenth century. The staff (including me at the time...) didn't like it much.
it shows how little i get out lol because i didnt know half of these had gone!
you'll be telling me bloody Londis is no more next!!?>
Courts, the furniture shop where they had the adverts with the judge and courtoom etc etc
Bells Stores - overtaken by Sainsbury's
which is a shame, because it's much more expensive now.
Wimpy still exists but they are being phased out I think, they tend to be found in old chavlands or motorway service stations. I am glad people here remember John Menzies. The retail business was sold to Smith's, but the library wholesalers business still exists as far as I know.
Music Zone was a sad loss but they expanded too quickly in a shrinking market, a guaranteed way to make your creditors panic.
Radio Rentals and Rumbelows are two shops that have now gone.
Dixon's is another although they were just rebranded currys.digital and the business still exist.
Don't know if anyone's mentioned Kwik Save and Virgin. Can't remember who Kwik Save were taken over by, but Virgin are now Zavvis.
ottakar's and dillons.
