Our area manager has told us there is a possibility of our shop being rebranded as a Clintons store as we are amongst the top selling Birthdays stores. So, it's fingers crossed time.

I work on the Thorntons franchise bit in Birthdays - very confusing, Clintons own us, trade as Birthdays but I am Supervisor for Thorntons.

My employer is Clintons / Birthdays

Our store is quite big.

My Thorntons gets delivered on Thursdays. The driver turned up at Thorntons early hours this morning to pick up our delivery and was sent away .........

Stupid thing is I had notification only yesterday to put my Thorntons order in (for next weeks delivery) today rather than the usual Monday due to Bank Holiday ! :roll:

Clintons > Birthdays.

That's a lie actually, Clinton's selection is dung, Birthdays have a wider range (of cards for your girlfriend's birthday or for any occasion girlfriend related). It's so forking hard to find a decent card that I haven't bought before. The card makers should be ashamed of themselves :x

You seem to be basing the fact that Birthdays and Clintons are not the same company on the premise that your local Birthdays shop has a better choice than your local Clintons shop. Hardly definitive proof and hardly a reason to call someone a liar.

The Birthdays here shut a while a back ( now a mobile phone shop ) maybe cos they had a Clintons just opposite.

Birthdays is a pile of ***** anyway. Rebrand them as Clintons and move on. Why didn't this happen in 2004?!

Calling myself a liar is a crime these days?

And stating that clintons card selection in Northern Ireland is crap and Birthdays frequently has a better selection is wrong too?

Come on.
