    Nope, as they are not closing any of the four within walking distance from my home.

    Do we know what will become of the empty stores?


    I see most are corner shop/Expresses but there is a fair few mega-shops in there. Presumably they'll not sell to a competitor and so could be turned into much needed housing perhaps?
    Anger ruins joy, it steals the goodness of my mind. Forces me to say terrible things. Overcoming anger brings peace of mind, a mind without regret. If I overcome anger, I will be delightful and loved by everyone.

    They losing the homestore close to me. I have probably only bought anything there maybe three times. I do go to the Costa Coffee in there though.


    As they have 2 large stores (one 24 hour) within probably a mile of the homestore I am not that surprised.

    I see a couple are in Sheffield, and there arent that many Tesco's there to begin with. Interesting as the cities retailers dont appear to be doing well all over, but my bro works for Iceland there and they are expanding.
    Faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
