    Imagine the clearance sale!

    feel sorry for the 5000+ staff if no buyer can be found though.

    I wonder if this will be another victim of crippling rent and rates?

    They're not going to have much in the way of assets are they?? Each store total stock is probably about 100!!!

    The founder got out with stacks of pound coins, the new owners thought they could milk it dry, and have done, bone dry!

    I used to deal with the original management, very savvy people, who understood the how and when of making serious cash from low margin, high turn over transactions.
