    What an utter shame BHS couldn't be saved from liquidation.

    Not only are the stores' 11,000 workers now facing finding employment elsewhere it has a wider impact on people who supply the company itself.

    I went in yesterday but only had 10% and 20% off some items, and lots of small sizes or large sizes left in clothing, came out with nothing.

    Went in there yesterday , prices have barely shifted, I can see them getting reduced pretty soon if no-one is buying at current prices, a lot was over priced in the first place
    I refer to my byline below ...

    Ad hominem
    An attack upon an opponent in order to discredit their arguement or opinion. Ad hominems are used by immature and/or unintelligent people because they are unable to counter their opponent using logic and intelligence.

    Yea I went in a week ago and prices were high so was checking if was due to go down and when would really close down as sure a week or two before they would drop to a closing down sale rather than so much off lie now and yea they were too pricy but good stuf, that's why wanted to try take advantage with getting a house shortly :)
