Flatpack End

There's been quite a few photos over the death of Woolworths, but I don't think I saw any of the MFI stores pulling down the shutters. So here's one to level things out a bit. OK, so the furniture wasn't very good, and they were the butt of many jokes, but still lots of people lost their jobs and many customers have lost their money or kitchens.

A couple of well known local restaurants threw in the towel yesterday. It is almost an everyday occurrence now. We are all wondering what will be next? My money is on H&M, the cheap & cheerful clothing outlet. I passed through our local store the other day & I think there was only about 6 customers in total, and that was at lunchtime.

Apologies to my global visitors, as these shop names may not mean anything to you. But I'm sure you could list some well know names in your country that have gone to the wall.
