No need to be sad. This is capitalism in action. Bad companies die, good companies replace them.
no wonder the one in town didn't open this morning. I walked around till near enough 10:30. All I wanted was a pretty top! At least it saved me some money.

Shame many of the supermarket clothes are not the best especially for adults.

I think the high street will become polarised - the middle classes will shop online more whilst the high street will cater to either the higher spenders who are willing to pay for better service or the lower class who shop in places like Primark.

Just a theory.
Card factory will close this week in my town, it's always packed out aswell .
Stores just cannot compete with online companies who offer free postage and reduced prices due to no massive overheads. 1 warehouse vs 30+ stores? which would you deem more economical :s.

Didnt this shop kind of cater for the niché market of sub size 8s??

I only get angry when people like you are so obvious when people are losing Jobs you come up with stupid reasons why.
Are you honestly saying that having 90 Stores means you where not good at running a business ?
Could it not just be the fact we are still in recession & people are not spending as much as they did 3 years ago.

Is like that pretty much on our high street. Take away banks and you're left with Fat Face/White Stuff/Costa or Charity shops

It's not a stupid reason. Failure to adapt to changing market conditions kills businesses.

Don't be angry because you don't understand. Just breathe.....

So here we have BIG FF from a Shopping forum telling us a Business that has 90 Stores & Millions if not Billions of pounds that they have been running the stores wrongly.
Why don't they just pay you millions & then they would never go out of Business X)

You live in a dream world.

I think a lot of towns are like it already like Sancho says. Even the banks can't be bothered to open for a full day in our nearest town now. Not surprising really, never seems anybody in them. It becomes a self fulfilling prophecy in a way; the more stores shut, the less there is to pull people onto the high street, then more stores close so even less to attract people and so on.

Sorry, have you not read the thread title?

Do you know that 'administration' is generally considered a bad thing to be in?
