There's nothing wrong with corduroy, so why would you assume that people who wear it are incontinent? :ooer:


I'm not discussing clothes with you, the last time we did you got trolled for years for saying you were wearing jeggings. Gawd knows why but Internet weirdos are the weirdest of weirdos.

Ok, I went to Solihull and the car parks were mostly full, so it seemed promising but the shops weren't all that packed. No big queues at the tills like most Sunday's leading up to Christmas. So, quieter than previous years but still busy for a Sunday.
I bought a nice sleeveless blue sequinned top and skirt. Was pleasantly surprised that I've gone down a size from all the Zumba I've been doing. Is that enough detail or do you want to know what I ate?

(Turkey and cranberry pie with mash and minted peas).


Ok. Il consider this and provide some brexit analysis in due course.

Thank you.


Basically, most do their shopping online. But I don't like getting clothes online.

Best tell Amazon then...

Retailer has registered British trademark for concept, which is opening in the US early next year.Amazon appears to be preparing to open checkout-free grocery stores in Britain after registering a UK trademark for its Amazon Go format.

The online retailer opened its first bricks and mortar foodstore on 5 December near its headquarters in Seattle. Amazon employees can shop there and it will open to the public early next year.

Quite possibly - but it blows away the bullshit by the right-wing media that online retailers are responsible for the decline and not Brexit.

From the simple one's link above. :pmsl:

Today, retailers face an assault on multiple fronts: National Living Wages and spiralling property prices are pushing up the cost of stores, while the collapse in pound post-Brexit is pushing up the cost of many items, and slowing consumer spending.

They already know.

Less customers in their shops = less profit.

Brexit uncertainty + Brexit higher priced imported goods = less profit.

Brexit = Bury St Edmunds retail pain.

They won't vote Leave again...

Toys R Us are closing down. Sad news for their workers. Their online warehouse is bigger than the store itself, that's closing too.

Yet toy sales are up. Nature of business. Innovate and adapt or die.

Nature of life too really.
