True enough, I just saw it on the BBC website though so thought I would post. It also says Laura Ashley are finding things 'tough' at the moment.

I head up Menswear and childrenswear for a large high street retailer. It is very tough out there at the moment....

Last weekend to give you an idea the footfall ( number of people shopping on the high street ) was down 13% on last year. Add to that that even those out are spending less and its very worrying for retailers.

I'm sure many boardrooms like me a re praying for a huge day today and that people have just left it late this year.

High street retailer going next - the open air ice cream parlour opened in Villiers Street in October. I mean WTF? The bit I love is that they genuinely look surprised when people walk past and don't go in

Not many people by the looks of it.

Also the Times says that Monsoon are asking for 'help' from their suppliers.

BHS is owned by Philip Green so no chance. It does quite well too - as does Smiths.

My money would be on a furniture retailer such as Land of Leather or electrical goods related such as Curries (maybe not this Christmas but 2009 will be a big struggle for them).

Zavvi are going down the toilet.

Department stores will struggle as will their concession businesses.

I went through Oxford Street yesterday around 4:30 - it wasn't busy at all (but still a horrific experience as usual). Hope things are better for you today.

Look at all the shoe shops that have gone recently - Dolcis, Faith, Stead and Simpson. Barratts lose a lot of money but are basically a property company with small shoe business attached. Will probably be ok.
