I had a work meeting in our county town this morning and used my lunchbreak that followed to try to do a bit of shopping. The town is already looking very depressed, with a huge gap where BHS was and many more empty shops.
M&S- one pair of knickers in a size 16 on display to match 30+ bras in the same pattern, various sizes. I asked if they had any size 12 knickers and the assistant responded "No, but you can buy them on line. I am seldom able to bnuy an M&S bra in a shop as they hardly ever have any of the matching knickers in medium sizes.
Debenhams 1 - wanted some Clinique make up , stood around for 10 minutes no one came to serve me.
Debenhams 2 - asked where the ladies sports wear was, I was told they didn't stock it any more but I could buy it on line.
If you turn up at the shops keenly intent on buying 3 items and either get told to buy on line or just get ignored i can't help but think that when Debenhams and M&S close ( one of them will) It really will be their own fault.
