Only 6 months ago there was an announcement to "open 10 new Netto stores in UK":

Indeed you are 100% correct. I had forgotten that their last venture into the UK was bought up by Asda?

Just less than 2 weeks, did anyone expect the citizens of UK wanted to exit the EU? It did as I was as who would know what the future holds. It's very clear the retailers are already adjusting their business policies to adapt to this uncertain economic climate with cut backs & offloading extra overheads to protect their main core business to stay afloat.
Its happened because Sainsburys only reopened them in the wrong places and have now have to raise the £2b for them to purchase Argos

I would have dismissed that as hyperbole, had I not been searching for more info on the story and found this.

So in May, they were going to announce in November what they were going to do. Something happened in the meantime. Could have been Brexit, could be something else.

Sainsburys wanted to buy Argos before the comment made above, in May.
People seem to want to blame brexit voters for everything it seems, Internet shopping decimated the high street more than leaving the EU will and how many people who voted to remain shop via the Internet., hypocrites????. This country survived before the EU and can survive after it. We're out now and negative backbiting won't help the country
How is this not hotter?

I've just filled two trolleys with all branded stuff for £63
Little Hulton store in Salford is 50% off too.

Well as I said before, something happened between May and now to change their minds.
I don't know if it's Brexit or not, but it's a legitimate question.

I'm guessing there's nothing left worth a journey. oO
No, not the case, surprisingly- as I left there, 5.30ish, they had someone outside not letting people in, as they should have closed at 5, but also saying they'd be open at 9am today
The issue there seemed to be that it isn't set up like Lidl/Aldi, to whip ppl through the tills- everyone had to pack their shopping at the till. As everyone had a big trolley full, it took ages, with queues that blocked the aisles and took ages to move. Tbh, even though ppl were fraught, there was a good sense of camaraderie, with ppl helping each other out with locating and passing stuff to others, but I wasn't half glad to get out! No intention of going back today either
Went to the Leeds store, some absolute savages in there lol they even stop people coming in at times because the store is so full

​Doesnt make sense it closed due to Brexit. As surely if people supposedly have less money then the budget stores would be more needed. Aldis,Lidls are thriving. maybe its due to those stores than Brexit.
Anyone able to advise if lincoln or sheffield is worth visiting or if they are still even there?

Yeah I saw that yesterday and thought there wasn't any point. Would only fear for my life, I know how nasty shoppers can get.

This site? Oh, wait a minute it's green.
With stores only left up north their operating costs will be hugh and their profit margins low, not surprised to see them close its been on the cards for years. Nothing to do with leaving EU just bad management decisions.

I don't think we've started the process. And takes 2 years to be out of it. You never know Theresa May could see sense and not invoke article 50.

You'd hope so, wouldn't you. I see the Tata Steel sale's yet another Brexit casualty - a self-inflicted wound by a lot of the less intelligent workers.

Brexit uncertainty

In a statement Tata said it had considered the bids for the UK business in detail and that they had also been reviewed "in the light of the uncertainties caused by the UK referendum and the outcome of the UK Government's consultation on the British Steel Pension scheme."

It added: "Taking the above issues into account, the Board of Tata Steel has decided to also look at alternative and more sustainable portfolio solutions for the European business."
