Sports Direct Closing Down Sale - Bishopbriggs and possibly others

I was driving past today and noticed ''Closing Down'' sale signs. A friend who lives there said they have been up well over a week. Deals to be had, none I know of in perticular

I hope this is posted in the correct area.

Also the photo I found on google is not of the store, so I imagine it could be at other locations.

Sports Direct - if I am correct - have been closing down for years!

Probably had in small writing "for refit" under the sign

Not closing for real coz they just bought 30 odd shops from JJB and in process of trying to buy blacks leisure group!!

The one in Exeter has been closing down for 10 years or so...........

Well there just a new store in that location, they took over a carpet shop.

For christmas no doubt.

No matter if there closing for rebranding or whatever

There is a sale going on.

And believe me it needs a refit, they still have the carpet down with all the underlay samples under it (from the previous shop)

I thought these idiots had learned their lesson.....

Reflects badly on the bloke who runs the business and purchased and absolutely destroyed the YSL and Karimoor etc brands.

When I was young YSL was cool, and a polo shirt was over £60

Now everyone wears them, the gutter is when you see tradespeople ( like me) wearing them to work now, all paint and ripped etc

''Reflects badly on the bloke who runs the business and purchased and absolutely destroyed the YSL and Karimoor etc brands.''
However much people on here and elsewhere like to knock the company and it's owner, how many of us would love to have even a fraction of his wealth ? If he's only destroying brands and not people, then there's not a lot wrong with his business sense really. There's a lot worse people than him around--- look at the drug dealing scumbags on your local highstreet and tell me who you'd rather invite to dinner ? Don't particularly like the permanent closing down sale method of trading, but if it earns him his millions.......

Indeed true, But what about where these super cheap clothes are made, I bet there nice conditions to work in. So indirectly its affecting people in some way. But there is worse no doubt.

Didn't YSL and Karrimor go bust before sportsdirect bought them? He just bought brands that had been failing (not surprising at £60 for a t-shirt!) so he never destroyed them.

Many people on here moan about Karrimor stuff. The "RRPs" might be overinflated but most of the stuff is OK for everyday use. Might not be great if you go climbing or walking every weekend. Let's face it if you pay £16 for a pair of walking shoes would you expect them to last for years if you walk many miles every week?

I bought some Karrimor shoes during the snow and they've been great. My feet haven't got wet yet, even in torrential rain!

Maybe this site just has a lot of the Toon army...

Store in Plymouth had been closing down for like 15 years before it actually did and even then they only moved around the corner to a bigger store (to then start closing down there as well lol). It's like the DFS sale, I want to be alive long enough to see it end!

Could be worse, I remember you used to get that g-star raw [email protected]@p real cheap compared to the £120 for demins the now.

YSL polos are good for golf or work in summer.

I didn't see the documentary on Mr Ashley(Read a Wikipedia article about him),but have seen and read many articles on this issue of cheap labour. We are all guilty of supporting cheap labour by buying the clothes and other goods which we must surely realise are far too cheap----not talking about sports direct . Why does almost everything we use get made in China and people in the west don't have jobs ? I honestly believe that one day the Chinese will just say that everything they sell will be ten times more expensive----by that stage all our industries will be long gone and we'll be at their mercy !
There is also a school of thought which says that even though some factories employ child labour, those children are the only wage earners in a household where the family would perhaps starve to death without the money.....thankfully we live in a country with a welfare system,despite it's abuses.

Sports Direct can have some good deals, but their adverts are very dodgy - 70% off the rrp of a brand that SD own and set the rrp of? It really is time legislation came down hard on all these iffy 'sales' by SD and DFS etc.

And now they're still proberbly made in the same factories at the same cost and sports Direct are able to sell them for a quarter of the price and still make a profit.

Nice to see people complianing about the reduced costs now and not over inflated rip cost of old :?

I think the point is that now all these farmers and stock brokers need a new wardrobe.

I doubnt there made to the same quality or in the same place. As the quality is severly reduced from the older stuff.

Quality is also noticeably reduced. I have an old YSL shirt and it has mother of pearl buttons, you won't be seeing any of those on anything in SD. Think Tesco value or Asda smart price T-shirt with YSL logo stitched onto it.
